I've sent another email to ESU Europe to find out which one exact receptacle they are using on the connector board.

Based on the datasheet for 5050702422, it mates with 505066 and 505270 series Receptacles.

https://www.mouser.ca/c/connectors/board-to-board-mezzanine-connectors/?m=Molex&number%20of%20positions=24%20Position&pitch=0.35%20mm&product=Receptacles&series=505066~~505270&rp=connectors%2Fboard-to-board-mezzanine-connectors%7C~Series

But, looking at the details up close, I think we want to go with 505066 series, because the stack height (connector+receptacle) is lower - every little bit matters. :)

Well my order from Streamlined Backshop just got here (two days earlier than original USPS estimate!).   The install I was hoping to use one for is an older Atlas Trainman GP15.  The older 73100 decoder worked well on these, but I was hoping not to do major frame surgery to fit the Nano in.  Unfortunately, while the decoder fits into the hood nicely, and also has the footprint to fit over the motor cradle (with milling), the added thickness still would lift the shell about 0.7mm!  That is too much even for interior shell sanding.

Plan B is to go ahead and use a 58721 (LS 5 Atlas drop in), and just mill the board channel out, using wires to go from decoder to motor contacts.  This will be a "Kapton Tape is my friend" installation.

Peteski,
I sent you and e-mail about a ESU Micro V5 decoder adaptor.
Might look in junk mail?
was looking for your thoughts.

I have your email Jerry - I need some time to think about the process, and formulate a reply (and time is in the short supply lately). I didn't forget about you.
