This installation of TCS DP2X Decoder is for HO Scale Stewart Baldwin AS-16 and was performed by A.G.

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

The picture above illustrates the original light board after the shell removal.


Remove the 8 PIN Dummy plug that you can find underneath the Original Light board.


Plug the TCS DP2X decoder right into the 8PIN NMRA socket so that the pin number one of the decoder is lined up with the Pin Number one of the socket.

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.
