Anyone have one of these?
Could you do me a favor and pop the bottom plate off to show what the wiring looks like inside?
The one I am working on looks like this:
As you can see, no wires, and I can find no trace of how they would have been connected.
The backstory is that a guy bought this ‘for a steal’ as it was a non-runner. When he got it home, he found a tender full of electronics and a battery, and he seemed not to know what it was and not to want to start converting to r/c. He’s new to large scale.
I just happened to have a spare, brand-new tender for this, so I offered him an exchange plus $$ for his tender. He liked the idea, and his tender turned out to be a huge, ten-wheeler tender which looked quite strange next to the loco!
When I got it I sent him this montage of 3 tender options.
Anyway, the loco had been stripped of all wiring, except a motor connection and the front headlight. I’m replacing it so it runs on track power.
