HO P2K EMD E8/9 installing a NCE D13W decoder

The Train Buddy installs another decoder but this time it is “full wire”. No plugs, no connectors, no room for error as the decoder does not have any plugs. This is one of the more difficult installs and is usually scheduled for 1 hour of work. Spoiler: it doesn’t always go as planned, even for the simpler ones. There is another engine very similar, the EMD E7 by Life Like Proto 2000 that is available on this channel just a few short months ago. Similar but it was a sound decoder install with more intricate lighting.
