However a more modern chip will be better in many ways – and if you do buy a new one, then don’t forget that a Massoth L is effectively the same as an LGB but much cheaper!
Be sure to get the manual on the loco and what the switches do first. The left button controlled the loco lights, and the right button is the function button, pressed the number of times for the function you wanted serial function.

LGB 55020 Digital MTS LOCO Decoder Does Not Work for Parts Only
Thread starter Phil Start date 13 Apr The only way to read back CV’s is to use the computer interface need software versions, how to download, etc. In my opinion, newer decoders are so much more capable with so many new features that I would give strong consideration to replacing any decoder that is serial only or no sound for that matter So, let’s proceed to try to unravel the complex story of LGB MTS, 55200 where the capabilities and limitations are.
You can press a function key to verify multiple flashes or a single flash serial or parallel respectively Notes on CV programming, no programming I think means blindly issue the CV setting command, no readback. Were the LGB decoders as reliable as the newer decoders?

Everywhere Threads This forum This thread. LGB went through many revisions and changes, and the initial systems were very limited lggb today’s standards. B chip ref no if this is a reasonable chip to put in maybe a stainz or something like that?
It was shown at the Nurnberg toy fair, it was introduced 6 years later in by Marklin under the name of “Digital HO”.

A common situation is where the box says something about DCC, yet it does not really mean that there is a decoder in the loco. You wouldn’t need a parallel system to reprogram it. I’m not sure the central station was available by itself. MTS 2P was released sometime after, and was the same as MTS 2, but allowed both serial and for the first time parallel function commands.

The system is limited to 14 speed steps. When a limitation is encountered, many people are confused where in the system the limtation exists. If you have a serial command station, then only certain decoders will operate on your layout.
Also, LGB was never very forthcoming about the individual limitations, but just basically told you “use this with that”. Trix had exclusive rights to the system. Lenz made these first generation components, I have seen pictures of the Train Mouse with “Lenz” on it. MTS 3 was released inmade by Massoth again, and allowed 4 digit addresses finallyserial and lb function commands, and for the first time 14 or 28 speed steps, and also CV programming.
I will endeavor to unravel this mess, but my recommendation is that since electronics are so inexpensive nowadays, that you jettision any really old LGB system and upgrade.
The ‘buzzing’ noise doesn’t worry me, just as long as it’s reliable. LGB decoders may require the motor as a load on the decoder when in service mode I suspect these switches are the ones that connect the track pickups directly to the motor, and also wire the lights to the motor. It’s like abut older technology. It’s an older version The left button controlled the loco lights, and the right button is the function button, pressed the number of times for the function you wanted serial function The speed control is center off.
