    Are you referring to the wires coming out of the tender and going to the back of the locomotive cab?

    Mine are gray and black but the wire on the left is common with the wheels on the left side of the tender (fireman's side) and the wire on the right is common with the tender wheels on the right (engineer's side).

    Appreciate it but mine doesn't have the removable pins either. I have 1 green and 1 black. 1 white and 1 black. My guess is black is just the same the common. One being for left and one for right.

    Appreciate it. Engine part is fine. It's to the blasted reverse unit. Thinking of tearing out the reverser and just wiring the motor to the trucks from the tender. [​IMG][​IMG]
