milwroadfan261,  thanks for the help. after doing as you explained the body came right off. I put in a decoder but now body won't go back on. I think I may have to use a n scale decoder with a long harness. 
but again thanks.
if you have any ideas of what decoder to use please tell me

I just purchased a Bachmann alco s-2 cp loco that dcc ready. but I am having a problem removing the shell so that I can install a decoder. the manuals don't tell how to remove the shell.  are there any screws that need to be removed and if so where are they located.

I just purchased a Bachmann also s-2  CP dcc ready loco. the problem I am having is how to remove the shell so I can put in a decoder. the manuals/paperwork included with it DO NOT explain or tell a person how to remove the shell. can someone tell me if 1. there are some screws that need to be removed first. or 2. is it some clips that have to be pressed.

rich , I just got a used prr k-4 pacific 4-6-2 and I noticed that the wipers behind the drivers are bent. is this the same problem you are having with these wipers being bent? I haven't run it yet because I have to fix a couple broken wires from the tender to the loco.
could you post a picture of the back of the drivers. I would like to see if I will be having the same problem.

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.

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.

ejseider, I got them from "Tam Valley Depot. it is a mono DCC juicer. Follow the instructions and it will work great. Also
remember it CAN NOT be used on a DC layout.  hope this helps

I was having the same kind of problem on a couple switches. then I heard about a item called "frog juicer" it costs about $14 for each. I then cut a gap/gaps and wired as per the instructions. now I no longer have the problem. hope this helps.

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.

baltoohiorrfan, will probably be ok since it will only run in the mine operation.
