Hello fellow rail modelers
I have a few Atlas decoder equiped HO locomotive and the decoder/motor is
quite noisy compared to other Atlas models or Kato locos.
Is that normal or are my locos deffective?
Is there a cure for this noise?
I guess I will put a NCE decoder in them, like all my other locos.
Come to think of it, those Atlas are not such a bargain when you figure the
cost of replacing the decoders.
Live and learn as they say.

Most locomotive manufacturers use decoder software built by various DCC
manufacturers. Often these decoders have features not documented by the
In the case of Atlas decoders check the value of CV7 and then look at
the corresponding manual on the Lenz site.
Many of these locomotives have decoders that have a high frquency silent
drive option but most often this feature is turned off and must be
activated manualy through a CV setting.
It is impossible to know if you locomotive has this feature or not
without knowing the decoder version number.
