Back to locomotive project

Got a message the other day that Digitrax is sending back a (hopefully) repaired command station *that smoked about a month ago for no apparent reason) so that I can get back to trying to get the LocSound Micro working in my Hoboken Shore 44 tonner. 

When I last left off, I had tried it in several different locomotives, but it keeps resetting randomly as if it can't handle the amperage. Ironically, there is an article about a successful installation of this decoder in the same Bachmann locomotive in a recent Model Railroader magazine. My next step, as suggested by Tom Pearson, is to try the decoder without the speaker. I'm pretty sure it is the speaker that came with the decoder, but there is no telling what the problem is at this point...
