This installation of TCS DP2X or TCS DP5 Decoder is for HO Scale Kato EMD SD70MAC Cab Headlight and was performed by A.G.

Grasping the shell at the center top of both sides (being careful not to crush the grills), lift the shell straight up and off of the chassis. Picture of the locomotive with its shell removed.

Plug the DP2X into the socket so that the pin#1 of the decoder (check the decoder manual for pin designations) goes into pin#1 of the socket.


As an alternative, we recommend using our TCS DP5 - 5 function drop-in decoder that will fit this engine perfectly and will give you option of extra light functions!

Hold the shell in one hand and the chassis in your other hand. Lining up the front of both pieces, lower the shell onto the chassis, keeping the lower edge of the shell parallel with the chassis.
