ATLAS SD24 Silver series-T1 with short harness NMRA plug
need to remove the bulkheads in the cab area for the chip to fit. I painted the
T1 matt black to disguise it.
Other solder tips:
When stripping wire, only strip a tiny little bit of the insulation. Strip no more then a 1/64 of an inch. When the wire gets tinned with solder the insulation will shrink back more. Try to not expose any more wire then half the length of the solder pad at most. In no case should solder or exposed wire wire ever be outside the boundary of the the solder pad you are attaching a wire to.
