First, remove the screw from the bottom of the loco (as per the operating instructions for the service of the unit) Lift the locomotive casing and remove. This loco has been built for digital conversion but you need a NEM 651 socket decoder (hard to come by and a little expensive) I chose to hard wire a T1 decoder.
the 651 plug is removed the motor is isolated from the track pickups and the
lights are isolated from one side to allow half wave powering. Following the
decoders instructions the red wire -----to the right side rail pickup
(Fleischmann's blue) orange wire -----to the motor
black wire ---- to the left side rail pickup grey wire ------to the motor
white to the forward headlight ----- yellow to the rear headlight.
Reassemble and you are ready to roll.
