What DCC system? Do you have more than 1 throttle? If so make sure the loco is not on both.     Joe

So do the lights blink alternately. I bet it's cooling looking in a dim room. I like the weathering job. Looks good. Hey Mr. Bach Man, please tell corparate to bring back the H16-44

No. I have an older Atlas S4. The shell on the Atlas does not have the walkway attached. It's part of teh frame.  Joe

 So either the Econami or Tsunami2 board style. Also buy the speaker and encloser  from Bachmann for the sound value loco.  Joe

The Athearn body should fit with modifications to the B"Man frame : the weight on the ends will need to be cut back at least an 1/8 ", the front and rear pilots between the steps are closed on the B Man unit and open on the Athearn unit. The Athearn unit has a piece that goes under the couple pocket to fill the hole.  Look at the photos to see what I'm talking about.  Joe

Remove the tender shell. This board should be visible. In the center is a rectangular plug with 2 holes diagonal from each other. On top and bottom are solder that look like a L and 7. Remove this plug. A sound decoder with an 8 pin plug will now go there. There is room for a speaker in the bottom of the tender. Soundtraxx and others make sound decoders. Choose the correct sound file for the loco. . Make sure to plug in decoder correct way.Pin 1 is the orange wire. The plug will have a 1 or dot where pin 1 goes. Here is the schematic of the loco and tender.   Joe

You could look for piano wire that would fit inside the gear and cut to fit. Or buy a new truck.  Joe

The new Ecnomi board style is the way I would go. Replace the PC board in there now with it. Also look to add a current keeper to it as well. Part number 810140. Joe

Although for a GP9 this will give you an idea on how to install a decoder.

What system? Some have settings for N,HO, and O scales which will put out different voltages.  Joe
