You will need:
Step 1: Detach the body
Unscrew the body holding screws, there is one at either end of the locomotive.
Step 2: Separate the pipes
Use a pair of tweezers to carefully separate the pipes on each side of the boiler. Make sure not to damage them during this step.
Step 3: Remove the body
Carefully separate the body from the chassis. This should come away easily once the pipes have been separated.
Step 4: Remove the blanking plate
Remove the blanking plate from the PCB. This is located in a slot towards the front of the locomotive.
Step 5: Install the Decoder
Insert the decoder into the PCB, where you removed the blanking plate earlier. We recommend the Gaugemaster DCC23.
You may want to test the chassis on DCC before continuing, to make sure it is working correctly.
Step 6: Replace the decoder socket
Return the decoder and socket to the slot at the front of the chassis.
Step 7: Reattach the body
Carefully reattach the body and chassis. Make sure not to trap any detailing or wires.
Step 8: Reattach the pipes
Using your tweezers, reattach the pipes into the holes on the sides of the boiler.
Step 9: Secure the body
Replace the screws holding the body and chassis together.
