    Good morning,
    i happen to have a couple of these board replacement decoders I was looking to install in locomotives where space is not enough for a standard installation.

    while I was studying the locomotive (an european model) I noticed that the decoder looks far different that what is described in the manual as in the picture below.

    I do not want to wire it by trial and error risking to fry it.

    Can anyone point me to the right documentation or tell me where the wires go? (need to wire for F0F/F0R while F1 and F2 will be the tailights (separately activated as the locomotive is a push and pull type).

    thank you very much

    It looks like you have the decoder flipped left to right.

    But the two connectors on the (top)side will be flipped as well....

    Not if you flip it over left to right. The picture in the manual is of the top side, you're looking at the decoder's bottom side. Turn it over like you are turning the page of a book.
