Set Up Checklist
- Lubricate the locomotive and assemble the set
- Apply power to run as described in the Basic Operating Section of this manual
Lubrication
You should lubricate the engine to prevent it from squeaking. Use
light household oil and follow the lubrication points marked “L”
(shown below). Do not over-oil. Use only a drop or two on each
pivot point.

Basic Operation
The Throttle knob controls how fast your train will travel.
The locomotive is stopped, started and reversed by means of the reversing ‘E-Unit’
located inside the locomotive. The E-Unit is a three position sequence relay which
cycles whenever current to the locomotive is interrupted. This can be done by
operating the ‘direction’ control on the transformer, or by moving the transformer
voltage control to the OFF position. The sequence of its operation is Forward,
Neutral, Reverse, Neutral, etc. In other words, if the locomotive is in forward
motion, operate the
‘Direction’ control once
Cycle Phases
Neutral
Reverse
Forward
Neutral
to stop it, and twice to reverse it.
If you want to operate the train in one direction only, which is necessary if you have
automatic stations or Insulated blocks in your layout, you must ‘lock-out’ the EUnit. Make sure the locomotive is moving in the desired direction then stop it.
Now, move the E-Unit lever (located at the rear of the motor) to its OFF position or
toward the right side of the locomotive. If the E-Unit is ‘locked out’ while it is in
the Neutral position, the locomotive will not run at all. Also, because the E-Unit
works partially by gravity, it will not operate properly if the locomotive is held on
its side or upside down. To resume normal operation move the E unit level to the
left.

Activating Features
Throttle- To increase or decrease track voltage, and therefore train speed, turn the
throttle control knob. Turning clockwise will increase voltage and speed, while
turning counterclockwise will decrease voltage and speed. The engine will maintain
the speed you set after you release the throttle until you turn it again to change the
voltage and speed.

Whistle- If your model includes a whistle, to sound the whistle, firmly press the
horn/whistle button on your transformer or controller. The whistle will sound for as
long as you continue to depress the button. It will stop when you release the button.
Maintenance
Lubricating and Greasing Instructions
The engine and tender should be well oiled and greased in order to run properly.
Regularly lubricate all axles and linkage components and pickup rollers to prevent
squeaking. Use light household oil, such as that found in M.T.H.'s maintenance kit.
Do not over oil. Use only a drop or two on each pivot point.

Figure 7: Lubrication Points on the Locomotive
The locomotive utilizes a direct drive motor that should not need direct lubrication.
However, it will be necessary to grease the idler gears located on the inside of the
drive wheels.

Cleaning The Wheels, Tires, and Track
Periodically check the locomotive wheels and
pickups for dirt and buildup, which can cause
poor electrical contact and traction and
prematurely wear out the neoprene traction tires.
Wheels and tires can be cleaned using denatured
(not rubbing) alcohol applied with a cotton swab.
To clean the track, use RailKing Track Cleaning
Fluid found in Maintenance Kit (30-50010) or
denatured (not rubbing) alcohol and a clean rag.
Unplug the transformer and wipe the rails of the track,
turning the rag frequently to ensure that you are using clean
cloth on the rails. Thereafter, keep an eye on the track and
clean it when it gets dirty to ensure good electrical contact
and to lengthen the life of the tires.
Clean any type of track with this heavy-duty track cleaning
block (40-1099). Durably constructed from ABS plastic, the
block includes a built-in cleaning pad. For really stubborn
track, you can insert sandpaper into the block in just a few
quick steps.
