16  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Adding sound to three truck shay on: September 26, 2018, 03:37:13 PM
Sorry Bill but the Shay is way before my time and I'm assuming it is a sound board from the original run. If the original poster does not have experience installing decoders (especially in a loco as complex as the shay) I would suggest he take it to a pro who does DCC/Sound installations for either an install or advice. The board will probably work with newer models but it will take someone with "Shay experience" to trace all the wiring and install the board since it is definitely not "plug and play".

Okay - hereís the procedure:
Remove the lead and trailing trucks.
There is a hole in the chassis under the lead truck - remove the screw that is deep in there attached to the boiler.
Remove the three screws that hold the plate on that is located under the cab and carefully lift the plate but donít pull on the connection wires attached to it.
There are two screws under that plate (one on each side) that need to be removed.
The chassis will now drop out.

Your issues sound like decoder setting adjustments. You should consult your decoder (Digitrax) documentation. First thing to do is a reset to default values (CV8 to a value of Cool. The speed adjustment could be speed step setting or momentum adjustments.

The crossing track gate is not "wired" like the reversing track sections so no, not without modifications.

You may want to try reprogramming the decoder this way since it is Digitrax:

The EZ Command unit will have no problems with a decoder that is NMRA compliant and programmed properly.

This model has been out of production for quite some time now. Parts are no longer available. Consider this a preemptive strike Wink

I would check the wiring on the decoder and if you have no luck you can contact the retailer or the Bachmann service department for a replacement.
