Track and Power
Although MTH Electric Trains manufactures its own track and
transformers, you can run your locomotive on 0-27 or wider-radius O
gauge track wired to draw power from any of the standard compatible
AC transformers listed in the chart on page 19. Be sure your track is in
good condition—clean and securely connected—to keep the locomotive
running and to prevent derailments. If you intend to utilize the
RiteTrax® track sections included in the set, see the directions below.

Preparing the Locomotive & Cars For
Operation
Before you run your locomotive, you must oil the locomotive.
Lubrication
RAILKING
Before you run the
locomotive, use a light
household or hobby oil to
lubricate the gears and pick
up rollers. Apply a small
drop of oil (a pinpoint oiler
will help place the right
amount of oil where you
need it) to each of the
points indicated by in the
diagram in figures 8. You
may also want to use either
a locomotive repair cradle
or an old towel folded over
to provide a protective bed
for the locomotive shell
while you’re working on it.

RailKing 2-6-0 Train Set Operating Manual
Because the locomotives’s internal gearing has been greased at the
factory, you shouldn’t need to add more grease until you have run the
locomotive for 50 hours or owned it for a year, whichever comes first.
See the section on lubrication, pages(s) 11-12, for detail.
Adding Smoke Fluid
The 2--6--0 contains a self--powered smoke unit that outputs a steady
stream of smoke through the smoke stack on the roof of the engine.
The ON/OFF switch located next to the trailing truck must be in the
ON position in order for the smoke unit to function. See Fig. 10 below.
The smoke unit is essentially a small heating element and wick which
soaks up and then “cooks" a mineral oil--based fluid that omits a
harmless smoke. The smoke is then forced out of the stack via a small
electric fan which runs at a constant speed. However, the smoke
intensity can be varied by increasing the transformer voltage setting.
The higher the setting, the more intense the smoke output
Figure 10: Locating the ProtoSmoke® ON/OFF Switch
7
RailKing 2-6-0 Train Set Operating Manual
RAILKING
Before operating the engine, you should add smoke fluid to the smoke
unit by pouring 15 - 25 drops of fluid into the locomotive’s smoke
stack. Use the included ProtoSmoke™ smoke fluid vial or Seuthe, LGB
or LVTS smoke fluid before you run the engine. If you don’t choose to
add the fluid, then the smoke unit switch should be turned off. Failure
to either add the fluid or turn the switch off could lead to damage to
the smoke unit heating element and or wicking. Add the fluid through
the smoke stack hole. After adding the fluid, gently blow into the stack
to eliminate any air bubbles.
Do not overfill the unit as
overfilling can cause the
fluid to leak out and coat
the interior engine
components. When the
smoke output begins to
diminish while running the
engine, an additional 10--15
drops of smoke fluid should
ProtoSmoke® ON/OFF Switch
be added or the smoke unit
switch should be turned off.
When storing the engine for long periods of time, you may want to add
at least 15 drops of fluid to keep the wick soaked with fluid and prevent
it from drying out. After removing the engine from storage, it is
advisable to add another 25 drops of fluid, letting the wick soak up the
fluid for 15 minutes prior to operation.

closed, pressing down on the coupler armature will open the coupler
knuckle to allow the couplers to interlock with one another. Before
turning on the transformer, it is important to understand the features of
your new train set.
RAILKING
Electronic Reverse Unit
The 2--6--0 model is controlled by an electronic reverse unit. The
reverse unit operates in the same manner that all reverse units function
by using forward, neutral and reverse states that are entered each time
the throttle is turned on and off or by using the transformer direction
switch (if so equipped).
In addition to the electronic reverse unit, your new train set locomotive
features a mechanical whistle that can be activated by pressing the
white Horn/Whistle button on your Z-500 transformer. Any compatible
transformer whistle or horn button will also activate the horn in your
new locomotive. Simply pressing the Horn/Whistle button whenever
the throttle is above the OFF setting should activate the whistle. If the
whistle doesn’t blow, increase the throttle setting and press the button
again. The whistle will blow as long as the button is depressed.
Now, if you’ve lubricated the locomotive friction points as indicated
earlier, you’re almost ready to start running your train set.

An alternative method to using the throttle to enter the next reverse
unit phase is to press the direction button. When depressed, the
transformer interrupts all power to the track as long as the button is
depressed. Releasing the button reapplies power to the track at
whatever voltage level the transformer throttle is set at.
Press the horn button, the horn should sound.
Note: Pressing the bell button will have no affect on your engine because your locomotive
is not equipped with a bell. Only locomotives equipped with full digital sound systems
(which feature engine sounds, horns, bells, air-release sound effects, squeaking brakes and
many other locomotive related sound effects) can utilize the bell button.

Advanced the transformer throttle. The locomotive's light will come on
but the engine will not move until you turn the throttle back OFF and
then ON again. The engine should now proceed in the forward
direction. At this point, advancing the throttle further will allow the
engine to pick up speed, reducing the throttle will slow the engine
down. Turning the throttle OFF and then back ON will park the engine
into neutral. Cycling the throttle OFF and then back ON again one
more time will allow the locomotive to enter reverse.
Special Reverse Unit Options
Locking Out The Reverse Unit Into One Full-Time
Direction
Your electronic reverse unit locomotive may be locked out into one of
three positions; forward, neutral or reverse. Locking the engine into
one of these three positions prevents the locomotive from cycling
through the reverse unit
phases and is useful for
operators employing block
signal operations on their
Reverse Unit Lock-Out Switch
layout. Once locked into
a position, turning the
throttle off and then on
again will not allow the
engine to enter the next
reverse unit phase and
instead keeps the engine
in the current locked out

(bottom chassis view).
To lock out the engine into
one of the three positions, simply enter that position using the
transformer throttle or direction button. Once in the desired direction,
remove the locomotive from the track and slide the ON/OFF switch
located on the bottom of the chassis (See Figure 13) to the OFF
position. This locks the engine into the desired direction. Sliding the
switch back to the ON position resets the reverse unit into its normal
reverse unit cycling phases.

Using the Z-500 With Self-Recharging, Battery
Equipped After-Market Sound Systems
When using the Z-500 transformer with after-market digital sound systems
employing a self-recharging battery backup system, operators should be
aware MTH does not recommend leaving the engine in neutral with the
power on and the throttle above the setting shown in Figure 10 for an
extended period of time. If you are recharging the battery found in these
after-market sound systems with a Z-500 transformer while in the neutral
position, MTH recommends the throttle be positioned as shown in Figure
10 for optimum charging power.
Train Set Maintenance Instructions
Proper locomotive performance requires regular attention to
lubrication. The following guidelines should be followed to ensure that
your set’s locomotive last for many years.
Oil
Before operating the locomotive, apply a small drop of oil to lubricate
the side rods and pick up rollers. Use light household oil and apply
Grease Gears
Figure 14: Removing the 2-6-0 locomotive shell from the chassis.
sparingly only to the points indicated by Figure 14. Wipe away any
excess, especially if oil spills onto the finish of the locomotive. To
prevent accidental scratches or other damage to the locomotive shell
while you are working, you may want to place the locomotive in a
repair cradle or an old towel or other cloth folded to provide a firm but
soft resting place.
11
RailKing 2-6-0 Train Set Operating Manual
RAILKING
Lubricate Pickup Rollers
And Side Rod Linkage
Check the locomotive oiling points periodically to be sure they are
moving freely and quietly. If they are not, apply small amount of oil
again. Also check locomotive wheels for dirt build up that can cause
performance problems. Such dirt build up can interfere with electrical
contacts, reduce traction (especially on elevated track sections), and
cause neprene traction tires to wear out prematurely.
Grease
Grease may be added to the external drive gears in lieu of oil. To add
grease simply apply liberally using a small screwdriver or toothpick to
the gear teeth. Take care to rotate the gear by gently spinning the
locomotive drive wheels so that all gear teeth can be greased.
Lamp Replacement
RAILKING
Your locomotive and caboose car may occasionally burn out their
headlights and/or interior lights. Should this occur, you will need to
remove the body from the chassis in order to replace the burned out
bulb.
To remove the 2-6-0 locomotive cab from its chassis, follow the body
removal instructions on the previous pages. Once the body has been
removed, rotate the headlight bulb counter-clockwise as seen in Figure
to remove the burned out
bulb.
Figure 16: Locating and removing the light bulb.
Figure 17: Removing the boiler to change the light bulb.

RailKing 2-6-0 Train Set Operating Manual
To remove the caboose car body from its chassis, turn the car over and
locate and remove the four mounting screws (one in each corner of the
car as seen in Figure 17) attaching the body to the chassis. Once the
screws are removed, gently lift the car body up and away from the
chassis.
After removing the body from the chassis, turn the chassis over and
locate the two car interior lamp housings mounted on the inside of the
chassis. Remove the burned out bulb by pushing the bulb downward
and rotating it counter-clockwise as seen in Figure 18. Once the bulb
has been removed, insert the replacement bulb by pushing down and
turning the bulb clockwise to lock into place.

durable and long-lasting there may arise a time where they will need to
be replaced. Should this occur, you will need to remove the
locomotive side rods (the rods that connect each drive wheel to one
another) in order to slip the new tire over the grooved drive wheel. The
side rods are fastened to the drive wheels with a screw that can be
removed with a 5mm nutdriver.
Before the new tire can be installed, you must make sure the old tire
has been completely removed from the groove in the drive wheel. Use
a razor blade or small flatblade screwdriver pry away any remains left
from the old tire that may still be in the drive wheel groove. Once the
old tire has been completely removed, slip the new tire onto the wheel.
You may find it useful to use two small flatblade screwdrivers to assist
you in stretching the tire over the wheel. Be careful to avoid twisting
the tire when stretching it over the wheel. If a twist occurs, the tire will

have to be removed and reinstalled or a noticeable wobble in your
engine will occur when operating the locomotive. In addition, it is
important to make sure that the tire is fully seated inside the groove.
Any portion of the tire extending out of the groove can cause the
engine to wobble. A razor blade can be used to trim away any excess
tire that doesn't t seat itself inside the groove properly.
Replacement tires are available directly from MTH Electric Trains.
