I have an 8-wire sound decoder that I'd like to move to a Fleischmann locomotive with an NEM 651 6-pin socket.
1.) What is the difference between 8-wire and 6-wire. I see no difference in functionality. Am I missing something?
2.) How can I adapt an 8-wire decoder to use in a 6-wire locomotive? Is there a socket-plug combination I can simply use?
