The dealer told me it was dcc ready but it has no plug or light board in the tender. How do I remove the loco shell? Am I better off sending it to Bachmann to have a decoder installed? What would it cost?

Bachmann does not provide any services to install or upgrade your locomotive to DCC and or sound. If you want DCC you will have to install it yourself or take it to a shop that performs installations (this costs a lot of money and is not something I would recommend).

It won't matter , all decoders are wired the same way . Just follow the color coded wires.
