Re: Older Lifelike to DCC

OK Mike, it was just a wild shot.

For the headlight with the dual filament, what I did was use a four-function decoder (TCS TH141) and wired each filament to a separate output. I don’t remember just how I set up the functions, but it was to simulate a MARS light.

You’ll have to experiment to find out which wire is the common on that bulb, and wire it to the blue lead.


Good luck,


Paul O

Thanks Paul,

You were probably looking at my earlier post about a PA that I was converting. This is a different engine - an E8. The boards do not look at all alike.. The one in the E8 does not have terminals like the one you posted. The wires are soldered into the board at various places.
