Running your Lionel Berkshire with a Lionel transformer
1
Place your Berkshire on Lionel or Lionel-compatible O
gauge track.
• With track power OFF,
Connect the drawbar between
locomotive and tender. Thats
all you have to do with
Lionel’s new Wireless Tether
, an infrared communication
system that eliminates the
plugs and wires of the past.

Power up your Berkshire with your transformer.
• Your is Berkshire designed to operate on 8-18 volts alternating
current. Virtually all Lionel and Lionel-compatible alternating-current transformers are suitable; we recommend the TrainMaster Command model railroad
control system.
• Do not power your Berkshire with direct current (DC). Damage to
sensitive electronic components may occur.
• When you first power up your track, the Berkshire will wait between 3
and 8 seconds as it “listens” for digital language from the TrainMaster
Command Base (available separately). When it’s determined that it’s on a transformer-controlled railroad, the Berkshire’s headlight will illuminate and
Railsounds will fire up. At this point, the Berkshire is in neutral. (This occurs
when placing the Berkshire on your railroad for the first time. Thereafter, it
starts in forward after every three-second power interrupt.)
Move ‘em out!
• Get your Berkshire moving. Press the DIR button on your CAB-1 remote or
Lionel transformer. This sequences the Liontech Command reverse unit
(RWLC) to the next operating state.
• Adjust track voltage until your Berkshire moves at your desired speed.

Locking your Berkshire into a single operational state
T
o select a single operational state for
your Lionel Berkshire (example: forward
only), you can deactivate the R2LC’s
sequencing function with the reverse unit
control switch, located underneath the cab
of the Berkshire.
Get your locomotive moving in the desired
direction, then slow it down without stop-
ping. Set the reverse unit control switch to
PROGRAM. The Berkshire is now
“locked” into your chosen direction.
When you no longer want single-direction
operation, just slide the reverse unit control
switch back to RUN.

ionel RailSounds is the most realistic
model railroad sound system in the
world. Your Berkshire features digital samples from a real-life Berkshire for the ultimate in realism.
Begin by installing a 9-volt alkaline battery in the tender. This ensures full-feature
operation of Rail-sounds. The battery compartment is located beneath the tender’s
removable coal load. Connect the 9-volt
alkaline battery to the lead and replace the
coal load.
When you first apply track power, the

Experiencing the range of your Berkshire’s RailSounds system
W
ith RailSounds, you experience the
sounds of real railroading like never
before. Simply put, it’s the most sophisticated, authentic model railroad sound system
in the world. And remember—inside your
Lionel Berkshire are the sounds of a real-life
Berkshire. No other electric train can offer
you authentic Berkshire sounds. That’s the
power of Lionel.
• Variable chuff rate. Your Berkshire’s
speed determines the steam chuff rate.
• MultiWhistle™. Different whistles
every time—a RailSounds exclusive.
• Authentic bell. Press BELL on your
CAB-1 or transformer to begin the effect,
again to discontinue. Even the final
“hit” is muted like the real thing.
• Reverse unit reset sound. Power
down your track, wait for 3-5 seconds,
and listen for the air-release sound—
that’s the Berkshire telling you its Lionel
Command reverse unit has just reset to
forward operation.
• Shutdown sequence. No other model
railroad sound system shuts down like
RailSounds. Turn off track power, and
after the air-release reset sound, you
have two seconds to restart your
Berkshire. If you’re done with operations, RailSounds will commence with
an authentic Berkshire shutdown
sequence about two seconds after the airrelease reset occurs. Note: The 9-volt
battery must be installed for the shutdown sequence to occur (see page 5).
Notes on RailSounds
• Use the volume controldial, located in
the battery well, to adjust sound output
(see page 5).
• Listen for incidental engine sounds during RailSounds operation. They’re automatic and, of course, authentic.
• The 9-volt alkaline battery you installed
ensures continuous Berkshire sounds,
even during short track-power interrupts.
• Longer track-power interruptions
(including locomotive derailments) cause RailSounds to shut down
after about 7 seconds.
• For even more authentic
RailSounds effects, operate your
Berkshire in the TrainMaster Command
environment. See page 8 for details.

TrainMaster Command operations
Your Berkshire in the TrainMaster Command environment
L
ionel TrainMaster Command is the fun
and sophisticated model railroad control
system from Lionel. Your Berkshire features
the Lionel Command reverse unit, which
acts as both a conventional reverse unit as
well as the key to unlocking many extra features when you operate in Command mode.
TrainMaster Command gives you the
power to operate multiple Command-
equipped locomotives on the same track, at
the same time. It’s the most fun you can
have with electric trains, and it’s incredibly
easy too! Just follow the directions below and
you’ll be on your way.
To operate in Command, you need a
Command Base and a CAB-1 remote. Find
them both at your authorized Lionel retailer.
1
Place your on Lionel or Lionel-compatible O gauge track.
2
Address your Berkshire with CAB-1.
3
• Make sure track power is OFF before placing it on track.
• Make sure your Lionel Command Base is ON and its communications wire is
connected to the COMMON post on your Lionel transformer or the U on any of
your installed PowerMasters.
• Once positioned on the track, increase track voltage to FULL (on PowerMaster,
slide the CMD/CONV switch to CMD). This automatically delivers full voltage to
the track.
• Press ENG and 1 on the numeric keypad of your CAB-1 remote. This command is sent by CAB-1 to the Command Base, which then translates your
command into digital code. That code is sent around your railroad’s outside rails in the form of a digital “halo.” All Command-equipped Lionels
listen to this digital communication, but they do not respond until they
hear their own ID number.
• The digital language of TrainMaster Command—and not track power—
controls the actions of Command-equipped Lionels. Track power is simply
like gasoline in the tank of your car—it gives you the power to go places,
but it doesn’t tell you where to go or how fast to get there.
• All Command-equipped Lionels come factory-programmed with an ID# of
“1.” To change your Berkshire’s ID#, see page 11.
Move ‘em out!
• Throttle up or press any command button on CAB-1. Your Berkshire will respond
to your every command. Read on. The fun is just beginning!

Your Berkshire’s digital communication antenna
Y
our Berkshire locomotive’s wire handrails are more than just model grabirons—they’re the R2LC’s receiving antenna
for Command Base digital communications.
Please handle the Berkshire carefully to
avoid handrail damage.
To ensure optimum reception, both handrails are insulated from the ’s die-cast shell.
If your Berkshire is experiencing difficulty
in receiving Base communications, check
the handrail ends in the cab and pilot for
the presence of insulating material. Ensure
each stanchion is present and enjoys a proper fit.
Finally, prevent the handrails from touching the steamchest/boiler front between the
last stanchion and the pilot.The tubing on
the handrail, near the hinges at the boiler
front, is factory-installed to assure that the
handrail (antenna) remains insulated from
the metal. This gives the best reception for
the digital communications.
If the tubing is not desired, remove it by
lifting the handrail out of the cowcatcher
and sliding the tubing off. Reinsert the
handrail, making sure the insulating bushing is in place.
Reprogramming R2LC circuit boards to restore features
D
ue to the inevitable derailments, static,
and the nature of electricity, it is possible that your R2LC could someday lose its
setup program. The symptoms of this condi-
tion would be unresponsiveness in command mode. This can be easily remedied by
“reprogramming” your R2LC using the following steps.
Step 1: Move switch on locomotive from
run to program.
Step 6: Turn off power to track, wait ten
seconds.
Step 2: Turn on Command Base.
Step 7: Remove locomotive from track,
move switch from program to run.
Step 3: Place locomotive on track, then
turn on power to track.
Step 8: Place locomotive back on track,
turn power on to track.
Step 4: Press “ENG” then input locomotive’s ID#. Press “SET”
Step 9: Press “ENG” and ID#, then operate as normal.
Step 5: Press “ENG”, then the ID#,
“AUX1”, then press the number 7 4.

Maintaining and servicing your Berkshire
Adding fluid to your Berkshire’s smoke generator
Y
our Berkshire is equipped with a smoke
generator that produces safe, clean
white smoke during operation.
The smoke generator
requires the periodic
addition of Lionel smoke
fluid in order to function. Pierce the tube end
with a pin, then add four
to eight drops of fluid
directly into the
Berkshire’s stack. Smoke
production will commence momentarily,
faster if you run your at speed. When smoke
production wanes, add more fluid (four to
eight drops).
An idle Berkshire will not smoke. In
TrainMaster Command operations, press
AUX1 and 9 (press for a maximum of 10
seconds) to engage the smoke generator at
idle/in neutral. Always keep a small amount
of smoke fluid in the
Berkshire’s smoke generator; the generator’s element can become damaged if operated without
fluid. Smoke production
is greater at higher voltages and when the is
