Hi Guys i hope someone can help me, I recently bought a Hornby Schools class loco named Shrewsbury.



It had a ZTC decoder in it so i took it off as i only and will only ever use DC. Heres my problem after unsoldering the wires i now have a Tender motor bogie with no wires on it and need to know where they should go



As you can see there are the two arms that the dcc decoder wires came off and there is also a connection on the pin that goes into the arm that connects the loco.



This is a picture of the rear of the loco that connects to the tender, The copper bits dont seem to attach to anything inside the loco body as it is just plastic



Any help from anyone would be greatly received. If you need more info or pictures then just PM me or leave a comment.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
Kind regards
Paul

Thanks Brian for that but unfortunately i cant remember which wires came off which terminals because i just unsoldered them off. (what a pratt i am)

Thats why i added the pictures you see thinking someone would know from that!.

Plus Brian there weren't any other wires on the tender for reference as to where they would go.

Kind regards
Paul

Hi Jim and Brian just thought i would let you know i have managed to get my Schools loco going although after i had connected it the way you said it still didn't move so i was very confused.com for a while, Then i noticed the spade connector in the chassis going to the small bogie wheels and then also there were two nickel silver strips coming up from the connecting bar from between the loco and tender. I soldered a piece of wire onto this strip of metal and then soldered the other end onto the spade connector and "Hey Presto" the loco worked straight away.
Again many thanks for your help

Kind regards
Paul
