When using these capacitors to store energy to keep your sound and loco running, select the largest value possible. Put one or more in parallel (observing polarity), if you have the room.
Litchfield Station, LLC recommends that you isolate the excess capacitance from the decoder as supplied by the vendor with a diode and resistor combination.
These capacitors are polarity sensitive. The banded side is negative.
