16  Discussion Boards / Large / Putting a decoder in a Grizzl Flats Emma Nevada on: May 24, 2017, 04:01:02 PM
I have a friend (disabled) who has asked me about putting a decoder in his Grizzly Flats Emma Nevada. I am not super familiar wit this loco.

The product description says includes "circuit board to accommodate the control system of ... NMRA/NEM DCC).  Does this mean it has an 8-pin socket on it?

When I look through the parts online, I see 3 possible PCBs for 2-6-0s:

Does anyone know which one of these is in the Emma Nevada?

I have a pair of wires (which I am able to remotely control) that I would like to use as a momentary switch to trigger an E-Z Track turnout. I am able to momentarily complete the circuit on these 2 wires.  Can anyone please explain to me how I can use these 2 wires and wire them into an E-Z App turnout and trigger it?

This site says the Climax has a "slip current" of 2 amps (hard stall 5):

I don't pull a lot of cars.

I would think Bachmann would have some sort of harness available that plugs into the Climax and gives you either bare wires or a connection option.

Is this 21-pin to 8-pin connector part of the equation?

I would like to add a decoder to a DCC-Ready Climax. The Climax does not have an 8-pin socket as I imagined. Is there a plug that I can get that plugs into this loco so I can have connectivity with a standard 8-pin DCC decoder that plugs in?

If I could get the name of that plug (or a link) that would be great.

Also, is the DCC-Ready plug inside the boiler?

I tried it out. Works just like the video. Good job.

Just to be clear, the APP doesn't pair with a speaker. You pair your phone/tablet with a speaker, which routes all sounds to the speaker (regardless of what APP you are running). Pairing is generally done from the Settings/Bluetooth area in your phone/tablet.  If you are having problems pairing your device to a bluetooth speaker, I would google "(name of device) can't pair bluetooth" and see what you find.

Glad you got it working. A transformer (Life-Like) would never have issues related to bluetooth. More likely it has issues related to amperage being drawn the moment the loco starts rolling.

Sounds like you started a thread about a loco that doesn't suit your needs.  But just so you know, there are plenty of devices that will run these trains, and a monthly service is not required. I see RCA voyagers are $42:

As for sound, lots of people put mini-bluetooth speakers in a trailing car for very cheap:

Best of luck.
27  Discussion Boards / Williams by Bachmann / Identifying colored wires used in lights on GP-30 on: February 28, 2017, 08:34:41 PM
There are 4 colored wires that lead to small circuit boards that power the lights on a Williams GP-30:  red, black, yellow, blue.

Can someone please tell me what sort of power runs through these 4 colored wires?

Is black ground? Is red Track voltage? What are blue and yellow?

Any help is appreciated.
28  Discussion Boards / Thomas & Friends / Question on colored wires in Large Scale Thomas on: February 22, 2017, 09:41:21 PM
Large Scale Thomas has 2 wires that lead to the motors (yellow and brown). Does anyone know which wire is positive and which wire is negative?

If you are experiencing a problem with E-Z App on iPod touch, you might want to contact BlueRail at support AT bluerailtrains dott com. Be sure to tell them which version of the iPod Touch you are using and what you are seeing.
