This installation is for the N Scale Atlas VO1000 and uses a TCS VO-1000 decoder and was performed by AG

The three pictures above show the Atlas Baldwin VO1000 with its shell on.The TCS VO-1000 Decoder will be installed.

 

First remove the shell by squeezing it on either side of the locomotive and gently rock it back and forth until it slips off the frame.

 

Now remove the screws from the chassis. Do not remove the drive train if possible.

 

Spread both halves of the frame apart and remove the original light board as shown in the picture above.

 

Insert a small piece of 1/4" Kapton tape between the frame and the copper tab (marked in red) . Make sure there is no short between the frame and the motor copper tab.

 

Do the same for the other side. Make sure there is no short between the frame and the motor copper tab.

 

Next slip the decoder between the two halves of the frame and reassemble it. NOTE: Make sure that the motor tabs line up properly with the motor pads on the decoder.

 

Insert the left screw.

 

Insert the right screw.

 

Here is a picture of the finished TCS VO-1000 installation. Reattach the shell and you are ready to run your locomotive on DCC.
