Title: Connecting a USRA 4-8-2 loco to a N&W J-class tender
Post by: bogie286 on September 26, 2017, 02:02:10 PM
Hi all. I am in the process of customizing a USRA mountain to pull a J class tender. I am new to n scale and I reached out to Bachmann tech support who pointed me here. Could someone tell me if the wires in the harness from the loco will connect properly to the PC board in the J-class tender? I will be installing DCC/sound too.

Thanks!
Bill

They may , the board in the tender should be marked beside the harness . If both tender boards are marked the same then no problem . If their different you could always cut the wires and hard wire to the tender pick-ups bypassing the tender board , or hardwire a decoder in if you are doing DCC .....Mike
