Uhlenbrock 75200 in Maerklin 3075, BR 216

I tried my first conversion of an analog locomotive to digital today. For this first time around, I made it easy on myself and used a decoder that is specifically made for Maerklin AC motors (Uhlenbrock 75200).

The photos show the locomotive with the cover removed before and after the conversion.

The motor has 3 arms and thus runs not quite as round as the BR 86 I have. However, this is my first conversion, I didn't break anything and the locomotive ran on the first try. What else can you ask for?
