Does anyone know how to wire a 6 pin DCC decoder without a socket. I can get a socket but what do I need to do to take care of the Positive connection for the lighting? (The decoder provides a neutral for the lights on the pins)

Actually quite simple. I cut off the plug and hard wired according to the NMRA color code. Did that with two 44 tonners and a 70 tonner using the LokSound v3.5 Micro's.

I understand the slight misconception. I have a Soundtraxx 6 pin DCC decoder ordered for a locomotive that I will not get for a while now (Not in production yet and did not know). The decoder has the pins directly on the board. It has all the connections but a Common and I would like to know where I need to connect them. I can get a socket to be wired into it but I still need a Common connection. Do I just have to connect it to the Positive Side of the Frame? I read somewhere that the decoder provides a (-) Connection and the Common is (+). Am I correct?
