Bill, if i remember correctly (and i may not) the connie has an access on the bottom in the rear of the loco that lets you get to the pc board. There is a simple two prong plug that disconnects the power pickup and the lighting wires and motor wires are there as well. From there i used the tender power pickup wires (disconnected from the trucks) to run power from my batteries and rx into the loco. (i'm not real sure about this one as i can't remember) But I used the rear light wire feeds for the front light. I know it was easy to pull new wires to the front of the loco for that. I didn't have to disassemble the loco shell at all for this save taking the boiler front cover off. I have run the loco for two years using the original factory plugs and wires between the loco and tender. I am using airwire with 3800 mAh 7.2 volt batteries. i hope this helps. If you have any other questions feel free to email me.
Terry
