Hi again
A reply to this letter on another group tells me that it is a standard NMRA connector, REM 651.  These are in common use in europe.  You can get them in the US from Litchfield station.  See the link http://www.litchfieldstation.com/xcart/home.php?cat=256
They have male, female and wired and  a 50 pin, male or female bar that can be cut down.  These are all cheaper than the Bachmann price.
I think this is the solution to my final problem.
Well, it's the final problem that I'm aware of.  SIGH!!!
Thanks for the help
Jim

AHA!!!
Do you have the allied number?  At $5 that is half of the bachmann cost.  Maybe if a batch of us ordered from allied the cost per unit would go down.

Hi
The 6 pin connector that is soldered to the board is a standard electronic part.  I'm sure that an electric supplier will have the appropriate matching part.  I just don't have any idea how to find it.

Hi
I've recently acquired some of the new Bachmann tenders.  I want to use them to put DCC in some old steamers.  I've figured out most of my problems,  one by one, but!!!

I want to buy some of the female connectors that attach to the 6 pin male connector attached to the board in the tender.  I know that I can buy the connectors from bachmann parts but at $10 each, that's more than I want to pay.  I'm sure that any of the big electronic outfits will have them, but I don't even know what to call them.

Anyone have a hint or two for me?

Thanks in advance  Jim
