Hard-Wiring a DCC Decoder (into a modern isolated model)
Please refer to the guide on Removal of DCC Sockets
for details of how to hard-wire a decoder - much of the information
is the same.
Just remember the decoder wire colours:
RED - track pickup - by convention, the right side of the loco (although it doesn't actually matter)
BLACK - track pickup - by convention, the left side of the loco (although it doesn't actually matter)
ORANGE - left-side of motor terminal
GREY - right-side of motor terminal (switch orange/grey around if loco runs backwards)
Please note that these guides are provided as useful resources for you, as-is. YouChoos cannot be held responsible for
errors in the information, or for any damage caused to your models or equipment if you choose to follow any of the
steps detailed here.
