Having read Ian Morton's article about converting the split chassis Bachmann Ivatt 2MT to DCC I decided to convert my Bachmann Pannier (900-001) to DCC as it would present no problems with valve gear.

On dismantled the chassis I have discovered that there are no springs connecting the two sides of the chassis, but electrical contact is made by a copper strip making connection from the brush holders to the two halves of the chassis which can be used for the orange/grey leads fron the chip.

The motor has a plastic cover to insulate it from the chassis.

Rail contact is clearly made by direct from the wheels to the chassis, however, there are no copper strips to connect the red/black wires to the chassis.

Can anyone help please.

I will be using a TCS M1 decoder which will fit in the cab.
