The three upper pictures show beautiful Mantua 4-6-2 Pacific with Vandy Tender prior to the TCS T1 Decoder Installation.
First off, locate the tender at the rear of the locomotive cab. This tender will slide off from the cab away from the locomotive rearward as show in the second image. TCS T1 Decoder will be installed in this engine.
The upper image shows the tender removed and the wiring harness with the factory installed connector/pcb board.
Unplug the pcb board from the connector as shown below.
Plug the TCS T1 Decoder as seen in the picture above.
Before reinstalling the tender test the decoder install on your test track. If all is well reinstall the tender, it will just cover the decoder without any interference. Reinstallation is the exact opposite of the removal. It is that easy, just press back together gently making sure everything is aligned as you do.
