I have my replacement motor and want to install it. I'll try first to do this as it was wired previously., But I have other similar locos that do well with a two pronged tender plug.

Other than one brush running to the draw bar, how is the other side of the motor circuit connected?



Still on my basic questions. Thanks for any help.

If I understand correctly, the other goes to the engine frame. The important thing here is that the drawbar must be isolated so that it doesn't short everything out.

So one side (motor connection) is the tender frame, the other side is the engine frame. Wheels must be isolated on the correct sides.

Also, if you ever change to command control, you then must disconnect this motor and isolate it from the frames of the engine and the tender.
