Beat me to it! I was about to post the same link.

Note the instructions are for the TCS decoder, but they apply to any mfg's hardwire decoder.

If at first you don't succeed, throw it in the spare parts box.

For the record I have never seen an HO Bachmann FP7 and did not know Bachmann even made one.

Now that you mention it, I haven't either. I've got a few FP7's, but they're Atlas, Athearn, and Intermountain. I wonder if that Bachmann FP7-B is actually an F7-B??

FP engines are something you find out about after being in railroading for awhile.  They are a little arcane and obscure for a mass marketer like Bachmann ....... although some of the Spectrum engines , like the long gone Decapod (😫😪😭) were arcane ...... Bachmann made thousands compared to the 200 or so prototypes that got marooned in the US by the 1917 Bolshevik revolution.
