 ::)I have the Bachmann 4-4-0 and 4-6-0 with their dcc decoders installed and
would like to install one in the Roundhouse 2-6-0. The Bachmann decoder has 8
connections and the Roundhouse has 9 connections.I would appreciate any help
available to help with this instilation.
                                                                                  Thanks,
                                                                                   Mohawk

Do you mean the Roundhouse locomotive has a plug with 9 connections?  There are a number of decoders with this style of plug.  Digitrax makes several.

Alternately, chop the plug off a Bachmann decoder and the plug off the Roundhouse wiring harness.  Connect the wires, matching colours.  Be sure to solder each joint and insulate each joint with shrink tubing.

Growing older is mandatory but growing up is optional.

Buy a nine plug decoder.

You do not have to match brands of decoder and there's an industry standard on data transfer.
