Transformer operations
Running your locomotive with a Lionel transformer
1
Place your locomotive on Lionel or Lionel-compatible
O-54 or larger track.
With track power OFF,
connect the drawbar between
locomotive and tender as
illustrated in Figure 1. That’s all
you have to do with Lionel’s
Wireless Tether, an infrared
communication system that
eliminates the plugs and wires of
the past.
2
Figure 1. Drawbar connection
Power up your locomotive with your transformer.
Your locomotive is designed to operate on 8-18 volts alternating
current. Virtually all Lionel and Lionel-compatible alternating-current
transformers are suitable.
Caution! Do not power your locomotive with direct current (DC). Damage to
sensitive electronic components may occur.
Note! When you first power up your track, the locomotive will wait
between three and eight seconds as it “listens” for digital language from the
TrainMaster Command Base (available separately). When it has determined that it’s
on a conventional (non-Command) railroad, the locomotive’s headlight will
illuminate and RailSounds will start. At this point, the locomotive is in neutral.
(This occurs when placing the locomotive on your railroad for the first time.
Thereafter, it will start in forward following every five-second power
interruption.)
To experience all of your locomotive’s features, we recommend using the
TrainMaster Command Control system, available at your authorized Lionel dealer.
3
Move ‘em out!
Get your locomotive moving. Press the DIRECTION button on your CAB-1
Remote Controller or Lionel transformer. This sequences the Command reverse unit
to the next operating state.
Adjust track voltage until your locomotive moves at your desired speed. To
increase speed, increase track voltage. To decrease speed, reduce voltage. To stop the
locomotive, turn-off track power.
See page 5 for information on locking your locomotive in a single
operational state.

Transformer operations
Locking your locomotive into a single operational state
o select a single operational state for
your Lionel locomotive (example:
forward only), you can deactivate the
Command reverse unit’s sequencing
function with the Command reverse unit
(PROG/RUN) switch.
Get your locomotive moving in the
desired direction, then slow it down
without stopping. Set the Command reverse
unit switch to PROG. Refer to Figure 2 for
the location of the switch. The locomotive is
now “locked” into your chosen direction.
When you no longer want single-direction
operation, just slide the Command reverse
unit switch back to RUN.

Using your tender-mounted ElectroCoupler in the
non-Command environment
o uncouple rolling stock from your
locomotive tender’s ElectroCoupler in
the non-Command environment, you must
rely on a piece of rolling stock equipped
with Lionel magnetic couplers coupled
directly to your locomotive tender’s
ElectroCoupler. The magnetic coupler on
the rolling stock will then react to the
magnetic field generated by a Lionel
Remote-Control Track section (available
separately, 6-65530 for O gauge, 6-65149 or
6-12746 for O-27 gauge). Place your rolling
stock’s coupler “trigger disc” over the
central coil of a Remote-Control Track
section and press UNCOUPLE on the
controller. The magnetic field pulls the disc
downward, and the coupler opens.

RailSounds operations
Your locomotive’s RailSounds sound system—the basics
he Lionel RailSounds sound system is
the most realistic model railroad sound
system in the world. Your locomotive
features digital samples from real-life steam
locomotives for the ultimate in realism.
Begin by installing a nine-volt alkaline
battery in the tender as illustrated in Figure 4
on page 9. This ensures interruption-free
operation of the RailSounds sound system.
The battery clip is located inside the tender.
To access the battery clip, you must first
remove the six body screws from the bottom
of the tender and then lift off the top of the
tender. Refer to the Figure 4 on page 9 for the
location of the body screws.
When you first apply track power, the
locomotive’s RailSounds sound system will
produce the sounds of the locomotive at rest.
As the locomotive moves, chuffing begins,
increasing with the locomotive’s speed.
To silence the steam chuffing sound
(whistle/bell are unaffected), slide the
RailSounds switch, located on the top of the
tender beneath the hatch (see page 9 for the
location), to the SIGNALSOUNDS position
before powering up the locomotive. The
whistle is activated by using the lever or button
on your transformer or CAB-1 Remote Controller.
The volume control knob is located on the top of
the tender beneath the hatch (see page 9).
T
Note! Please remove the protective cover from the battery clip before installing the battery.
Note! Although RailSounds is powered by track voltage, the battery is required for
uninterrupted operation and shutdown sequences. Use only alkaline batteries.
Discontinue locomotive power for ten seconds before changing the RailSounds
Note! ON/OFF switch position.
If the RailSounds sound system “drops out” during track power interruptions
Note! (during direction changes, switches, crossings, etc.), replace the battery.

chuffing of a locomotive battling
inertia. Reduce your throttle setting, and
chuffing relaxes to a more sedate sound,

RailSounds operations
Experiencing the range of your locomotive’s RailSounds system
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.
• Variable chuff rate. The speed of
your locomotive determines the steam
chuff rate.
• MultiWhistle. Different whistles
for different speeds—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 three to five
seconds, and listen for the air-release
sound—that’s the locomotive telling
you its 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
locomotive. If you’re done with
operations, RailSounds will commence
with an authentic shutdown sequence
about two seconds after the air-release
reset occurs.
Note! A nine-volt alkaline battery must
be installed for the shutdown
sequence.
W
Notes on RailSounds
• Use the volume control knob, located
under the hatch on top of the tender, to
adjust sound output. Refer to Figure 4 on
page 9. Use a flat-blade screwdriver to
adjust the volume level.
• The nine-volt alkaline battery you
installed ensures continuous sounds,
even during short track-power
interruptions. The battery must be
installed for the shutdown sequence.
• Longer track-power interruptions
(including locomotive derailments)
cause RailSounds to shut down after
about seven seconds.
• For even more authentic RailSounds
effects, operate your locomotive in the
TrainMaster Command environment. See
pages 13-16 for details.
Note! Do not force the volume control
knob past the point where it will
easily turn, or damage to the
volume control will result.
• Listen for incidental locomotive sounds
during the operation of the RailSounds
sound system. They’re automatic and, of
course, authentic.
10
Odyssey System operations
The Odyssey System
he Odyssey System is a “cruise control”
for your locomotive. Once the speed is
set (see below), your locomotive will
maintain a constant speed, no matter what
loads the locomotive pulls or what grades
you have on your layout. This digitallycontrolled system also allows for extremely
slow movement that will amaze any “scale”
enthusiast.
T
Odyssey System conventional (transformer) operation
he Odyssey System is automatically operational when you operate your locomotive in
conventional (non-Command Control) mode, as long as the Odyssey switch is in the ON
position (see Figure 2 on page 5). This means that your locomotive will maintain a constant
speed, compensating for grades, loads, and turns. Simply use your transformer’s throttle to
adjust the speed of your locomotive. If you would like to deactivate the speed control feature,
slide the Odyssey switch to the OFF position while the locomotive is not in motion.
T
Caution! In conventional operation, the lights in both the engine and tender are
connected directly to track power. Do not exceed 14-16 volts for extended
periods. Doing so will reduce the life of your lamps.
Note! Because of the way that speed control operates in conventional mode, you will
notice a slight delay between adjusting your transformer throttle and the change in
the speed of your locomotive. If you desire instantaneous response to throttle
changes, turn off the Odyssey System.

TrainMaster Command operations
The Command Control environment
rainMaster Command Control is the
advanced model railroad control system
from Lionel. TrainMaster Command Control
gives you the power to operate multiple
Command-equipped locomotives on the
same track, at the same time.
T
1
To operate in Command mode, you
need a Command Base (6-12911)
and a CAB-1 Remote Controller
(6-12868). Find them both at your
authorized Lionel retailer.
Place your locomotive on Lionel or
Lionel-compatible O-54 or larger track.
• Make sure track power is OFF before placing on the track.
• Make sure your Lionel Command Base is plugged-in and its
communications wire is connected to the COMMON post on your Lionel
transformer or the U terminal on any of your installed PowerMasters.
• Once positioned on the track, increase track voltage to FULL (no
more than 20 volts). On PowerMasters, slide the CMD/CONV switch to CMD.
2
Address your locomotive using CAB-1.
• Press ENG and 1 on the numeric keypad of your CAB-1. 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 Lionel
engines listen to this digital communication, but they do not respond until
they hear their individual ID number—in this case, “1.”
• The digital language of TrainMaster Command—and not track
power—controls the actions of Command-equipped Lionel
engines. 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.
Note! All Command locomotives come factory-programmed with an
ID# of “1.” To change the ID# of your locomotive, see page 17.
3
Move ‘em out!
• Throttle up or press any command button on the CAB-1. Your
locomotive will respond to your every command. Read on.

TrainMaster Command operations
Tuning your locomotive’s performance
For quick remote-control of volume below
the master setting—like muting—use the
CAB-1 numeric keypad’s volume control.
Press AUX1, 4 on the keypad to lower
overall RailSounds output.
MOMENTUM
TrainMaster Command’s momentum
feature simulates the labored performance
of a locomotive pulling a heavy load. Press
L, M, or H (located under CAB-1’s
removable panel) for light, medium, or
heavy momentum. The locomotive’s
Command reverse unit remembers this
setting until you change it. For quick
locomotive response, choose L.
HIGH VOLTAGE SETTING
Press SET, and the headlight will flash.
Get your locomotive moving to the
maximum speed you want it to run, then
press BOOST. Use this to keep your
locomotive from derailing at excessive
speeds. Turn off the high voltage setting by
pressing SET, then BOOST, holding each
for one second.
BRAKING AND BOOSTING
There’s more to starting and stopping
than just turning the CAB-1 throttle. Use the
BOOST and BRAKE command buttons—
they give you incremental control of speed
and are the superior way to handle grades,
gradual stops-and-starts, and more. Plus,
using BRAKE in the Command
environment gives you a bonus RailSounds
effect—the ultra-realistic sound of
squealing brakes.
STALL
Make your locomotive feel more
responsive by setting a “stall” voltage. Get
your locomotive moving, then press SET;
the locomotive will stop. Turn the throttle
clockwise to get the locomotive moving,
then decrease speed until the locomotive
just stops. Press SET again; the Command
reverse unit remembers the stall setting
until you change it. To clear the stall
setting, press SET twice, holding it for one
second each time.
SOUND QUALITY
To set your maximum volume level, use
the volume control knob located on the top
of the tender beneath the hatch (see
Figure 4 on page 9). Turn the knob left or
right to adjust the volume to your liking.
Note! These settings will be lost when you assign a new engine ID number.

blow (or see the headlight flash if
RailSounds is off); that’s the Command
reverse unit confirming the new ID#. Set
the Command reverse unit switch to RUN.
Your locomotive is ready for operations with
its all-new ID#.
We recommend that you choose an easy to
remember ID# for your engine. Some possibilities are part of the engine road number,
your age, or any two digit number that is not
used by another engine. Write the number on a
small piece of tape and put this on the bottom
of the tender frame to aid in remembering.
TrainMaster Command operations
Reprogramming the Command reverse unit to restore features
ue to the inevitable derailments and
static, it is possible that your Command
reverse unit could someday lose its setup
program. The symptom of this condition
would be unresponsiveness in Command
mode. This can be easily remedied by
“reprogramming” your Command reverse
unit using the following steps.
STEP 5: Press ENG, the ID#, AUX1, then
press 74 for this particular locomotive.

STEP 1: Move the switch on your
locomotive from RUN to PROG.
STEP 2: Plug in your Command Base.
STEP 8: Place the locomotive back on
track, then turn power on to the track.
STEP 3: Place the locomotive on track,
then turn on power to your track.
STEP 9: Press ENG and the ID#, then
operate as normal.
STEP 4: Press ENG then input the
locomotive’s ID#. Press SET.
Maintaining your locomotive’s handrail antenna
our locomotive handrails are more than
just model grab irons—they’re the
Command reverse unit’s antenna for
receiving Command Base digital
communications. Please handle the
locomotive carefully to avoid handrail
damage. To ensure optimum reception, both
handrails are insulated from the die-cast
metal shell. If your locomotive experiences
difficulty receiving Command Base
communications, check the handrail ends in
the cab and pilot for the presence of
insulating material. Ensure that each
insulator is present and in position. Finally,
prevent the handrails from touching any part
of the die-cast metal locomotive cab.

Maintaining and servicing your locomotive
Adding fluid to your locomotive’s smoke generator
next time you power it up. When operating
your locomotive in the TrainMaster
Command Control environment, press
AUX1, 8 on your CAB-1 to turn off the
smoke unit; press AUX1, 9 to turn on the
smoke unit.
our locomotive 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. A small tube of smoke fluid was
included with this locomotive. Pierce the
fluid tube’s end with a pin, then add eight to
ten drops of fluid directly into the smoke
stack. Smoke production will commence
momentarily, faster if you run your
locomotive at speed. When smoke production
wanes, add more fluid (eight to ten drops).
When you place your locomotive on the
track for the first time, the smoke unit will
be on. Thereafter, the smoke unit will return
to its last operating state each time you
power it up. For example, if you turn off the
smoke unit before you power down the
locomotive, the smoke unit will be off the
next time you power it up. If the smoke unit
was on before you powered down the
locomotive, the smoke unit will be on the
Y
Note! To control the operation of the
smoke unit with your CAB-1, be
sure that the smoke unit switch is
in the ON position. Refer to
Figure 2 on page 5 for the
location of the switch. Commands
from the CAB-1 will not override
the switch setting.
Always keep a small amount of smoke
fluid in the locomotive smoke generator; the
generator’s element can become damaged if
operated without fluid. Smoke production is
greater at higher voltages and when the
locomotive is pulling a heavy load or long
consist.
Note! Always keep smoke fluid in your locomotive smoke generator. If not, turn it off when
smoke is not desired using the smoke unit switch shown in Figure 2 on page 5 or the
AUX1, 8 command if you are running in Command mode.
19
Maintaining and servicing your locomotive
Lubricating your locomotive
elp your Lionel locomotive lead a long
and productive life on your railroad by
maintaining it properly.
We recommend that you purchase a
Lionel Lubrication and Maintenance Kit
(part no. 6-62927), available from your
Lionel dealer. Two basic rules to keep in
mind: never over-lubricate (a small amount
will do), and avoid getting grease or oil on
the locomotive wheels, contact rollers,
or your track.
You’ll know your locomotive requires
lubrication when visual inspection reveals
dryness on the parts indicated in Figure 5.
Remove accumulated dirt and dust before
lubricating, and always lubricate any
locomotive emerging from prolonged
storage. Also, lightly lubricate the
locomotive side rods, drive rods, linkage,
front and rear truck pivot points, and tender
wheel bearings after each 25 hours of
operation.

Maintaining and servicing your locomotive
Servicing your locomotive’s lamps
Note! Before changing the lamps in your locomotive, be sure to check that the AUX2
command was not used to turn off the front headlight.
Lamp Numbers:
Headlight (1)
Cab light (1)
Ash pan light assembly
Number board lamp assembly
our locomotive is illuminated by several
lamps. One lamp is located in the
headlight housing mounted on the boiler
front. Another lamp illuminates the interior
of the cab, and a lamp assembly illuminates
the ashpan. The ashpan lamps glow brighter
as the locomotive’s speed increases. Two
lamps are found in the lamp assembly that
illuminates the boiler-top number boards.
During the course of normal operations,
these lamps may require replacement.
Removing the four screws as shown in
Figure 5 on page 20 will allow access to the
inside of the cab and the expired lamps. Due
to the complexity of the required
disassembly, we recommend that you take
your locomotive to your authorized Lionel
Service Center for any lamp replacement.

Note! The two green classification
lights, the flickering firebox
lights, and the boiler front “Mars”
light (Nickel Plate Road version
only) are LEDs (light emitting
diodes) and are not user
serviceable. They can be replaced
by your authorized Lionel Service
Center, if it is ever required.
Note! Mars light operation (Nickel Plate Road version only): The flashing Mars light is
always on whenever the locomotive is powered up, regardless of the locomotive’s
direction.

Replacing your tender’s lamps
our tender’s back-up light is illuminated
by one lamp. During the course of
normal operations, you may find that this
lamp requires replacement.
To replace the lamp, remove the six body
screws from the underside of the tender and
lift away the tender body. Refer to Figure 6.
Be careful with the wires that attach the
body to the frame. From inside the body,
unscrew the bracket that holds the lamp and
the rubber grommet. Grasp the lamp wires
and gently pull the expired lamp out of the
grommet. Remove the lamp from its
connector and install Lionel part no. 6108049-300, available from your authorized
Lionel dealer or from Lionel Service. See
Lionel Service section on page 24 for more
for more information.
Reassemble the tender in reverse order. Be
sure that all wires are inside the body before
you tighten the screws.

Maintaining and servicing your locomotive
Tire-Traction
our locomotive is equipped with traction
tires. This means that two of the drive
wheels are fitted with rubber traction tires to
enhance tractive effort so your locomotive
can pull many cars at once.
Lionel has provided extra traction tires to
replace the installed traction tires if they
ever wear out. The traction tires are replaced
by unscrewing the drive rod screws. A 3/16”
nut driver is included with this locomotive
for this purpose. Slip off the old traction tire
and remove it from under the drive rod.
Place the new traction tire on the wheel and
re-tighten the drive rod screw.

Installing the O gauge front coupler
n O gauge coupler (non-operating) is
included with your locomotive for those
who may wish to “double-head” their trains
with a second Berkshire or another locomotive. Straighten out the wire coupler pin with
a pair of needle nose pliers. The coupler pin
runs through the scale coupler. Using a
small Phillips head screwdriver, loosen and
remove the screw holding the scale coupler.
Remove the scale coupler. Position the
O gauge coupler and secure with the previously removed screw. Refer to Figure 7.
Store the scale coupler in a safe place for
possible reassembly at a later date.
