Hi and welcome to my Garden Railway Blog:

I’m from the Old Skool way of doing things, very much the paper and pencil type. The collection of notes diagrams etc., has started to get o...

LGB 55025 Point Motor Decoder:

LGB 55025 decoder is designed for use with DCC digital systems.

Maximum load per output 1.5 Amp.

Total maximum load 3 Amps.

The decoder is connected to the track and draws its voltage from the operating digital system.

In order to be able to program the decoder, connect a LGB 12010 point motor to Output A, and make an electrical link between the two connections marked ‘Prog’.

The link must be maintained for the duration of the programming procedure, and then removed for the correct operation of the decoder.

1. Connect LGB 12010 and decoder.

2. Bridge the Prog connections with a link wire.

3. Program CV 1 with the desired address.



Address range for CV 1.

To use two EPL drives simultaneously using one terminal of the 55025 Point Motor Decoder, increase the impulse time to 1 second.

To do so, program the function value for the terminal (CV 2-5, depending on whether you want to use terminal 1, 2, 3 or 4 in this manner) to 7.




Created a Revised Massoth Service Tool decoder template.

Whist the 55025 decoder best known primary function is operate LGB 12010 point motors, and secondary using LED's or Lamps, with ingenuity an assortment of devices can be connected. 

Two examples as below.









Operating a modified Servo Tester to operate a Servo, for correct operation remove jumper.





MOSFET Module to power high voltage and high amperage devices, Air Solenoid valves for example.
