Underground Ernie - Exposed
Follow our images on any powered Underground unit to help you install a DCC Digital Decoder
In this image we have shown you where the 6 screws are which you must remove so you take off the body top - note: a small philips screw driver is required to remove them (6 screws in total)
Next, before taking off the body remove the face by holding and pulling forward as shown in the image
Remove Loco face as shown in image and put to one side
Remove body upwards as shown in the picture below
Here we show you the 8 Pin DCC Decoder Blanking plate (In red circle) and the 12 V DC motor (In Blue circle)
Remove the Blanking Plate (Yellow Circle) and then you can see the 8 Pin DCC Socket exposed (Red Circel) Important!! Follow the instructions of the decoder of your choice when fitting in to the socket. Once fitted, its a simple case of testing on the track, renaming the decoder number from default 3 to your choice and repeat on next loco so that you can run several Underground Ernie ebgine on the same track using any DCC digital controller.
Our Final picture below shows you the only tool required to dismantle the power unit is a small philips screwdriver (dont forget to look after the 6 retaining screws) - Re-assemble is simple a case of following these instructons in revers.
