Fire Station
The RailKing® Operating Fire Station adds a splash of life to your O Gauge layout.
Constructed from sturdy ABS plastic and brightly painted, the fire station features a
moving fire truck and fire fighter sliding down the pole.
The fire station is pre-assembled, so set up is quick and easy when you follow the
diagram and instructions inside.
The RailKing® Fire Station is made up of three components: the fire station
building and base, the fire truck, and the activation button. Before you place the fire
station on the layout, you must wire the station to the activation button and power
source. In order to connect power to each component, the six (6) enclosed wires
must be connected to the wiring posts located on the underside of the fire station
and the activation button. Wires from ports A-C control the fire truck operation.
Wires from ports D-E control the lights. Follow the diagram (Fig 1) shown to make
the correct connections.

Replacing the Light Bulbs: There are several easy-to-change light bulbs located in the fire
station. Follow the instructions below to change them.
1. Remove the fire truck from the station.
2. Turn the building and base upside down, propping it carefully, and remove
the ten (10) screws from the base cover. Then remove the three (3) gear
screws clustered at the center of the base (See Fig. 2)
3. Carefully remove the base cover.
4. Taking careful note of how the gear fits and remove it.
5. Remove the ten (10) housing screws (See Fig. 2)
6. Carefully turn the fire station back over and tilt the housing away from the
7. Replace the lights bulbs as described below (See Fig. 3):
•Building Lights: Twist the light bulb counterclockwise to remove it.
Push the replacement bulb in and twist it clockwise.
•Fire Pole Light: Pull the light out and gently snap the new one in to replace it
(like Christmas tree lights).
Reassemble in the opposite order, taking care to align the gear and its screw holes before
replacing the bottom of the base.
You can obtain replacement bulbs directly from the M.T.H. parts department (phone:
410-381-2580; e-mail: parts@mth-railking.com; mail: 7020 Columbia Gateway Drive,
Columbia MD 21046-1532).
Final Touches: To protect some of the trim from breaking during transit, M.T.H. has
packaged it separately, in a small plastic bag. To complete set up, insert the silver siren
into the hole on the top of the fire house and insert the chrome plated light housing into
the small holes at the back of the fire truck. You may choose to set up the Dalmatian
and fire hydrant wherever you want or not use it at all.
Chrome Plated Light Housing
Operating Instructions: Once the fire station is wired to receive a 14-20 volt minimum
power supply from the transformer and the transformer is turned on, simply press the
activation button to start the fire station sequence.
In order to get the fire truck into the fire house, you must press the activation button to
begin the cycle. Once the small tab that will carry the truck along its track has exited the
fire house and come to a stop, place the truck onto the tab. When you play the return
sequence, the truck will be taken into the fire house.
In the beginning sequence, the red warning lights above the garage door will begin
blinking. Then the door will open, as a light comes on and a fire fighter slides down the
pole in the front window. Next, you will hear the fire truck start and see it pull out of
the station. The truck will leave the bay completely before making a right hand turn and
coming to a complete stop. After the truck has stopped, it will remain stationary until
the operator pushes the activation button to return it to the station.
When you press the activation button a second time, the truck will start up and roll
backward into the fire station bay. Once it is in the bay, the motor sound will shut off
and the bay door will close, concluding the operation.
You can stop the motion and sound at any time by turning the power off or by pressing
the transformer's "Direction" button. Once the power is returned, the truck will return
to its starting position without sound effects.
