Can someone tell me re the wiring of the pc board in a Bachmann On30 Climax. I have some wires that have come loose and need to know where they connect to on the board, they have nothing to do with the DCC decoder.
I have tried to get the info from the service dept. but they won't help me. They said to come to the forum instead.

You can use a continuity tester to determine where the loose wires connect to on the loco (motor, track pickups or lights).  The circuit board might have markings on it ( for example M for motor). If not you can run a continuity test between the 8 pin connector terminals on the circuit board and those soldering points on the board where the wires broke.  8 pin connectors have a specific protocol for pickups.  Now you can finally determine what broken wire goes where.
