    Wrong sub forum. If you want cheap, try Digitrax, but you'll have to hard-wire a new decoder.

    @Ender did an install of a TCS board in a B'mann 70 tonner a while ago. you could probably get a comparable board from Digitrax

    Have you contacted Bachmann for a replacement? You indicated you wanted something other than OEM, but that could be a "cure worse than the disease" proposition.
