One of the top rated, year after year,  model trains only brick & mortar in USA is less than seven miles from me.  More than ten with model trains are within 15 miles.

Connections are marked on the light board. The markings are probably on the underside as installed.

     L+  is Light positive   perhaps is the blue wire
     L-   is Light negative  perhaps is the black wire

Bachmann does not adhere to wire color codes. You cannot depend on wire color to determine it purpose.  You will have to test.

Down load JMRI and use that to adjust CVs   . . .

Caveat - JMRI DecoderPro cannot be used with some DCC systems.  It cannot be used with Bachmann DCC system,
  E-Z Command Control Center (Item No. 44902)
     or
  E-Z Command Dynamis (Item No. 36505)

Use the accessory AC terminals of a DC model train power pack to power the switch machine in the E-Z Track Turnout.
 
Click Here for turnout instructions. Read all the instructions do not depend only on the illustrations.

You can also use a wall wart transformer rated 12 to 16 volts output at 500 milliamps (mA) up to 1 amp in place of the DC model train power pack.  Either AC or DC output wall wart transformer will work.

The Bach-man,
Bachmann uses what type of plastic for gears - ABS, Nylon, ? ? ?



24  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Split Gear Syndrome on: May 28, 2018, 01:57:55 PM
Jonathan, which CA did you use?

Do not allow Isopropyl Alcohol to come in contact with your repaired gears.

". . . test before committing to a large dollar purchase of track."
 Bob --- On that, we agree. Also, I am not spending any more time on this.




Bill Uhlig, CYA -  test the Bachmann "stuff" on Peco Gauge 1 code 200 track before investing much time and money.

 buhlig  (aka -Bill Uhlig)

Should your customer have issues using Peco Gauge 1 Code 200 track with his Bachmann large scale. The Peco track code is not the problem.
27  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Will Bachmann Big Haulers or Spectrum run on Peco code 200 track on: May 27, 2018, 10:25:35 PM
Bob,

Peco Gauge 1 code 200 track is not aluminum. Nevertheless, answer to your question - Yes. Two different layouts, neither mine.
 
Do you know folks that have running issues with Bachmann large scale on brass code 332 and code 250 track. I do.




BTW Bob , what information did you receive from Peco Technical Advice Bureau?

(Per my undated tech notes -  Peco has no information code 200 track cannot be used with Bachmann large scale.)
