         I just purshed a new Bachmann 2 8 0 with dcc onboard. First off, for dc only should I remove the decoder and put the dummy plugs in ? Also is there a way to have sound on dc ( I know I have to install a speaker and buy the ez command controller, but what else do I do  ? also what speaker should I buy?........Sorry I,m new to most of this......Thanks rod.

I have written an illustrated article on Installing a "Tsunami" in the
Bachmann 2-8-0.  If you E-mail me with your snail-mail address I
will send you a copy.

Also Harold (HMINKY) has a what I did on his website.
http://www.pacificcoastairlinerr.com/of_sound/

We both use "Tsunami's"  the difference is in the methods used.

I discard the "Bachmann" circuit board, he does not.
We both use twin speakers for better sound.  Here again our methods differ.

My method requires no modification to the loco or tender, his does.

I suggest you read both our methods and choose for yourself which method
or a combination of both you like.

Either way you will have a sweet running  and sounding loco.
