Micro Trains SW1500

Any one figure a better way to get power from the trucks to the frame?
The tabs on the loco just don’t cut it!
When you try to remove shell the tabs are very fragil and hard to remove without bending them.

Solder wires to the tabs and attach them to the frame? I would assume it works but have never tried it.

Or wait for the redesigned Atlas Frame (I assume with sound) :trollface:
