As an update, it's apparently an RDC-2 and not an RDC-3 that I have (during this project I have been learning the ABCs of RDCs!). Operation Light Board Delete has been performed successfully, with the board replaced by a styrene sheet on top of which are taped an older Digitrax decoder and all of the wiring, to keep such things up and out of window view.

Oh god, all that work and you put a digitrax decoder in. Youll figure that mistake out the first time something shorts out and it wont restart running without tipping it off the tracks and putting it back on,.
