Sounds like the white wire is a ground wire.. This would be used for noise suppression of the motor.. I would save it, but I do not think you will need it with the DCC decoder.. I would also install the decoder in the loco, that way you have 2 wires for the rear lite, 2 wires for the speaker & 2 wires for track power to the loco.. That way you can add cab lites & smoke control with out extra wires between the tender & loco..


PS Looking forward to the pictures of the install..
