Re: Connectors for Backmann Spectrum Steam Locos

Steven Haworth

Are connectors really the best option for these locos?  I have
several, and need to add DCC-like electronics to them, and was
wondering if I should just replace them w/ permanently connected
wires, or perhaps bring the wires into the tender and use a more
robust connector inside the tender instead.

Anyone done that?  And - anyone taken apart one, to replace the wire
leads on the loco side of the connection?
