What Digitrax 9 pin decoder would go good with this http://dcchobbysupply.com/zcart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=19&products_id=30&zenid=2efb24d2930734b78c527c89808afa39 ?

It needs to be able to work in Athearn's HO scale Standard RS-3.

If its a newer Athearn than any JST decoder will work. I put TCS T1 decoders in mine. Just pull out the jumper plug and plug in the decoder. Thats all.
