    58828 is the Next18 only part number (LokSound 5 Micro DCC). Doesn’t have any daughter board. 58818 is the multi protocol decoder

    I have done some Kato F2s, E8/9s, and now a pair of PAs. The EZ-FIT diameters are .076 for the lower headlight, and .108 for the upper headlight.

    Yep, I’ve put poly-Ta caps into P42, F40PH and F3s with these. Attached to the U+/GND pads just forward of the speaker pads.

    There are plenty available on eBay (updated versions-minor changes), as well as at a number of on line suppliers. TrainBoard advertiser Streamlined Backshop has them in stock.

    That is a good rule of thumb for Tantalum capacitors. There is more “room” for Poly-Ta caps, but I would still want to stay at no greater than 75%.

    That's a good rule of thumb for any capacitor.
