Regarding sleeves and tape.

The decoder should not touch any metal perts of the loco - hence the sleeve. And the decoder should be allowed to cool off as it gets warm - hence the no tape idea.

You have to use common sense to negotiate between the two situations. Place the decoder in a spot wher it won't touch any other parts and loosly cover if there is a danger of contact. I place the decoder on double sided sponge tape and then sometimes fold the excess wires over the decoder and then cover the whole thing with tape to keep together. This works fine.
