Why disassemble an Atlas Loco ?

To install the sound decoder (ESU loksound XL) I completely remove the Atlas electronics board (lower left on photo).
I always wire the two motors in series - this has the advantage that the top speed is reduced as well as the top current!

To be able to paint the bright silver truck side frames the trucks have to be completely removed from the frame.
Atlas uses lots of screws - and most of them are not easy to access .....

Now sound equipped and ready!
