Has everything needed for complete DCC sound installation. Wow Sound probably the best in the market for smooth low-speed motor control.
This is my the second purchase of this particular kit. The sound and motor control on the first were so outstanding I had to have another.
Using this TCS WOW WDK-BAC1 WOW steam decoder kit is one of the easiest intsalls I have done. This kit comes with a mother board Keep Alive, a WOW 21 pin steam decoder, a speaker with baffle and speaker connection wires. This is designed for the Bachman Spectrum 2-8-0. I installed this in the Bachmann Light 4-8-2 as it has basically the same board in it. It was a diect fit with no modifications to the tender body. The wiring in the 4-8-2 is backwards from the 2-8-0 in that the plugs are on the engine and the wires are in the tender. One thing I found was that the tender truck wheels are insulated in reverse of what the wiring shows in the diagrams. This was also true for a 2-8-0 I did earlier. I used an NCE Power Cab set in the USE PROGRAM TRACK mode as to not apply the power to the decoder to let out the magic smoke. I used the indicator light on the panel to see the shorts whe you put the tender on the track. The light will go out if it detects a short. I switched the direction of all the wheels sets from what they were on the model and the short indication went away. (An easier way would be just to switch the internal tender truck wires) Once this was done the decoder ran on address 3 right out of the package. The speaker and baffle that come with the kit fit right in, in between the coal load and under floor with no modification. I used Plumber Goop to secure the speaker to the enclosure and the enclosure to the coal load. What I like about the GOOP is that you can remove parts later with little dificulty and no solvents. Programming the decoder was a breeze and the on board audio assist feature helps prgram the chuff rates very well. Over all I spent about 45 minutes on the instal from start to finish. I recommend this easy to instal TSC WOW kit for any Bachmann engine as I am sure the other models will fit right in just like the BAC1 Kit.
