Title: 4-6-2 dcc connectors
Post by: indian_hills_r_r on September 02, 2017, 08:16:47 PM
i just purchased a Bachmann spectrum 4-6-2 k4 pacific penn #3750 post war w/modern pilot. the tender came with a two wire connector and a 4 connector. The two wire connector wires are broken off. There is wires, one is black , the other is brown. Does anyone know the wiring specs. ?  Is the brown wire closest to the 4 wire connector or is the black one closest. The blowup shows the wires but not the colors.

Is the PCB mounted in the center of the tender or is it mounted on the rear of the tender?

I haven't opened the tender yet. I am traveling so I don't have all my tools for my trains. I will be home in oct. at which time I will open the tender.

yardmaster , I opened the tender and found the board in the center of the tender. I also found where and how the wires go. I need to call Bachmann service to see if they can (1.) fix the wire connector  (2) the scrapers behind the drive wheels are bent and can be fixed or replaced. I was looking at digitrax  decoder  dh163 LO which looks like a pcb/decoder with a 8 pin connector on it. I think it would work.
