HO / Re: PCC Sparking Pole Shell Swap

It should be an LED in the pole. So, polarity matters. If you wire the pole up aand it doesn't work, reverse the wires.
 It usually means dirty track , wheels or both. Could also be a bad connection to the decoder.

You'll need to remove the board installed from the factory. A Loksound 5 nano will have to be hard wired in. Loksound has a ge sound file, but it's for a 44 tonner. If you order, you have to have the file loaded into the decoder. Digitax has a N scale sdXn147ps. With this you need a pr3 or pr4 to down load a sound file. Digitrax has one for the  45tonner.

According to Soundtraxx, 10 light blinks means the deocder is getting too much voltage. Get a meter and measure the voltage at the track. Should not exceed 20 volts. There is no reset button. What power pack are you using?

 It looks like the cab roof comes off. Looks like a tab on each end holds it in place.

What brand DCC controller?
 No. The chasis for the FT-A is wider then the other 2. The GP30 is a split frame and had a triangle shape at the end. The GP7/9 frame is atraight across at the end.    Joe

This is for a TCS hard wired decoder. It will work with any 8 wire decoder.                 Joe

On my Bachmann diesels, the wires are stranded. I noticed they broke easily from the trucks when I added sound decoders.   Joe
I say no. The I/O port is for the discontinued walk around companion. The 44212 is a DC controller. Don't mix DC and DCC.

You need to be more specific. Steam or diesel?Is 3500 a model number or road number?
