DCC engine to tender conections
Posted by sabaj on Tuesday, February 12, 2008 10:36 PM

I have a HO Rivarossi 4-8-4 northern that came DCC ready. Where can you find  connectors  like they used between the engine and tender ?   It is not in parts list.

 When I changed the batteries in 2 of my cordless phones Saturday I noticed they were very close in size. Since I never have worked in electronics I have no idea what they would be called or where to look for them.

I have several other engines of different manufactors I would like to instal the tender  light into and I have Miniatronics Micro-mini conectors but they are 2 to 3 times as long as the cordless phone type battery conections. 

Do to the fact I am having a new hip put in tomorrow( can not say replaced as I have no joint now just a bone wallowing in the pelvis)  I will not be back home until Saturday so I will say

THANK YOU now.
