Thanks for the replies everyone.

Jim- I have been there and took the locomotive with me. They were a little
bit baffled about DCC installation. Great place!

Rick- What screws should I use? What about installing a working coupler on
the front?

Lynn- Are the tender trucks doing all the pickup? I see the locomotive
won't run without the tender. What needs isolated to install the decoder?
Again, I've never done a brass DCC installation before so any details you
can provide would be helpful. I have very little DCC installation
experience besides plug and go. So brass is daunting.

Thanks all!
