QUOTE (poliss @ 18 Jan 2008, 00:33) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Problem solved. Was bad decoder design. The contacts on the decoder board are so small the motor strips weren't touching it. Had to bend them upward. Took about six attempts and had to replace everything that dropped out a few times. The contacts on the board are bigger on the wrong side, sheesh!!
It would have been a lot easier if the board fitted like PC RAM.

**Try a TCS AMD4 or ASD4 next time, depending on loco size.... TCS were the first to do a direct drop in for Atlas HO and N loco's and are still best at it.

AMD = Atlas Medium diesel ASD = Atlas Short Diesel 4 = 4 function

- see TCS website for relevant loco lists.... they have excellent back EMF and a goof proof warranty too....
