I have searched everywhere I can think of and can't find any details of how to disassemble the loco or where to place the decoder - can anyone help?

**Hello Randolph

It will almost certainly be one screw up front and then remove the drawbar... a TCS MC-2 or M-1 will certainly fit, and a TCS DP2x-UK wireless decoder may fit too....

Bromsgrove models carry these in stock in UK and offer excellent service.

Here below is a copy of the 5MT exploded drawing

I have just this weekend put a chip in a Class 5 ....one screw at each end as quoted before ...but also the speedometer has a tiny screw on the wheel axle...this releases the speedometer. The back screw is under the brake thingy which pops out. There is a lovely receptacle for the decoder in front of the plug...be wary of the screw in the base of said receptacle which could short out your decoder..
Good Luck..

Got a ZTC4007 direct plug-in in mine, although if doing another (or any other loco with a direct plug-in decoder) I would use the TCD DP2x UK (which is also slightly smaller)

There is a plastic "box" included with the Standard 5 that slots into that receptacle area and insulates a "floating" decoder - the box has the top and one end open. Having either a ZTC4007 or a TCS DP2X-UK (I think that's right) plugged directly in negates the need for the plastic item.

Thanks everyone, especially Tim for his words and pictures, I now have my Lokpilot 3 installed and the loco works!
