 before purchasing the HO version of the Polar Express, will the decoder installed by Lionel be compatible to my Nce Power Cab system.

The advertizing says it will run on DCC so it should run on your NCE PowerCab.

Welcome, by the way!

I would do some checking around, getting some more info on this.  Lionel has their own system.  I would be double checking on it's DCC compatibility.  The ad say it does, but MTH also says their products run fine on DCC, but some have had difference experiences.

Maybe I'm too cautious about other manufacturers "systems" that are suppose to be DCC compatible.

I recall a Youtube review where the person shows both the Lionel system as well as DCC and it ran well.

Google Lionel polar express. It states loco can be run by their LionChief remote, a transformer, or your DDC.
