    DCC in an N Scale Bachmann 0-6-0?

    Hi;

    I have one of the latest runs of Bachmann 0-6-0's. Has anyone installed DCC in this? I haven't removed the shell yet, but I assume there isn't much room since the motor hangs out the cab. Maybe one would fit in the tender? :confused: How about adding a headlight? Somehow, I don't expect that anyone has done this but I thought it would,'t hurt to ask. [​IMG] I also want to add electrical pickup in the rear tender truck. It runs pretty good, but more pickups can't hurt.

    Thanks,
    Tom.

    Thanks, but mine is an N Scale 0-6-0 with the sloped tender. You did a great (and neat) installation in your loco, much neater than I am. Nice job! I wish mine had anywhere near that much room. I've taken the shell off and did exploratory surgey this afternoon, and it looks lile the tender for me and running wires to the motor and headlight (if I can figure out how to get an LED under the hood).

    Tom.
