The installation is for HO Scale Bachmann Great Western Railway Pannier tank . It uses TCS MC2P-UK digital decoder and was performed by Robert Lewis, UK

Important Soldering Tip:
Please do not use any flux either liquid or paste on the mother board. It will damage it. Use only Rosin core solder approved for electronics use.
We recommend to use only Kester "44" rosin core, SN63PB37, .015" diameter, part number 24-6337-0007.
This can be ordered from Techni-Tool under Techni-Tool part number 488SO157


Remove the 2 screws from the positions marked with the red arrows, and lift the body clear of the chassis.



Remove the 8 pin blanking plug and fir MC2 decoder, noting orientation of pin 1 ( orange wire), should be to the front right.

There is room inside one of the side tanks to tuck the decoder, using a piece of double sided take to secure it.

Once installed, refit body and the 2 screws, then place on test track to check installation and program.

Other solder tips: When stripping wire, only strip a tiny little bit of the insulation. Strip no more then a 1/64 of an inch. When the wire gets tinned with solder the insulation will shrink back more. Try to not expose any more wire then half the length of the solder pad at most. In no case should solder or exposed wire wire ever be outside the boundary of the the solder pad you are attaching a wire to.
