Remove the bottom plate of the truck and you will see some small brass buss bars/right angle clip . Remove the clip completely and resolder the wires directly to the tab that remains. Check with meter for isolation. Use silicon to insure the brass tabs cannot make contact. There is , however, no such short cut for track power DCC. You must perform the step I just outlined, but will still need to run a second pair of wires from the brass pickups up into the loco to the main board. All pickup and motor circuits are tied together in the board on the bottom of the firebox.. But the internal truck connections from pickup to motor still need to be bypassed. Greg: it will be a bit of a chore in your case.
