Title: 2-8-0 loco to tender wires
Post by: Gion on July 06, 2009, 04:04:49 PM
I know you shouldn't take anything apart without proper documentation but I did it again.

I disassembled my Connie's tender wiring and now that I want to put a sound system in it I don't know what the wires are for. There is a 2-wire and a 4-wire connection to the loco.

Can anyone help where those wires go to on the loco side?

Thanks, Gion

Gion,
Refer to the documentation supplied by Bachmann with the Connie.  Look at sheet G812X-IS004.  That will show you the wiring diagrams for both DC and DCC. 

From the diagram you should be able to trace the wires from the tender to the locomotive and the wires coming from the locomotive to the tender.
