Caution! Do not attempt to raise or lower the pantographs by hand.
Note! Be sure to remove the paper bands from around the pantographs before you operate
the locomotive.
1. Place your locomotive on Lionel or Lionel-compatible O-72 or larger
track.
2. Power your locomotive at 8-19 volts with your alternating current (AC)
transformer.
Note! Do not power your locomotive with a direct-current (DC) transformer. Damage to
sensitive electronic components may occur.
3. Wait three to eight seconds as your locomotive determines whether it is in
a conventional environment or a TrainMaster Command Control
environment. The pantographs will operate automatically.
4. Move ‘em out! Press the DIRECTION button on your controller, then
throttle up.
TrainMaster Command Control operations
Caution! Do not attempt to raise or lower the pantographs by hand.
Note! Be sure to remove the paper bands from around the pantographs before you operate
the locomotive.
o operate your locomotive in the Command Control environment, you need a Command
Base (available separately, 6-12911) and a CAB-1 Remote Controller (available separately,
6-12868). These products are available together in the TrainMaster Command Set (6-12969).
1. Turn off track power and plug in the Command Base.
2. Place your locomotive on Lionel or Lionel-compatible O-72 or larger
track.
3. Increase track voltage to full power or 19 volts AC.
T
Note! Do not power your locomotive with a direct-current (DC) transformer. Damage to
sensitive electronic components may occur.
4. Press ENG and 1 to address your locomotive with your CAB-1 Remote
Controller. The pantographs will operate automatically.
5. Throttle up and move ‘em out.

Conventional transformer operations
Conventional operations
our locomotive is capable of operating in the conventional environment with nothing more
than a standard Lionel alternating-current (AC) transformer.
In the conventional environment, your locomotive cycles through a repeating pattern of
operations: forward, neutral, reverse, neutral, and so on. To advance to the next operation, press
the DIRECTION button on your transformer. Alternately, you could use the throttle to briefly
turn off track power so that the locomotive advances to the next operation when power is
restored.
Once you cycle the locomotive into forward or reverse, you control your locomotive’s speed
by varying track voltage with the transformer’s throttle. To increase the speed of the locomotive,
you increase track voltage. To decrease the speed, you decrease track voltage. To stop the
locomotive and to change directions (or to enter neutral), track voltage is turned off or
interrupted.
Use the HORN and BELL buttons on your transformer (or separate buttons if your
transformer is not equipped with these controls, see page 15) to activate these features.
To experience all of your locomotive’s features, we recommend operating in the TrainMaster
Command Control environment. With a simple one-wire connection, you can use the CAB-1
Remote Controller to access all of the functions of your locomotive. Refer to pages 21-31 to see
how to operate your locomotive in the TrainMaster Command Control environment.

Conventional transformer operations
Operating your locomotive in the conventional environment
Caution! Do not attempt to raise or lower the pantographs by hand.
Note! Be sure to remove the paper bands from around the pantographs before you operate
the locomotive.
1. Place your locomotive on Lionel or Lionel-compatible O-72 or larger
track.
2. Power your locomotive at 8-19 volts with your alternating current (AC)
transformer.
Caution! Power your locomotive with an alternating-current (AC) transformer only.
Powering your locomotive with a direct-current (DC) transformer may result in
damage to sensitive electronic components.
3. Wait three to eight seconds as your locomotive determines whether it is in
a conventional environment or a TrainMaster Command Control
environment. The pantographs will operate automatically.
When the locomotive has determined that a TrainMaster Command Base is not connected to
the track, the locomotive’s headlight will illuminate and the RailSounds sound system will
start. You are ready for operation in the conventional environment.
4. Move ‘em out!
Press the DIRECTION button on your transformer to sequence your locomotive through
the repeating pattern of operations: forward, neutral, reverse, neutral, and so on. You may
also briefly turn off track power to advance the locomotive to the next operating state. Adjust
the throttle until your locomotive moves at your desired speed.
Note! When placing your locomotive on your layout for the first time, it will start out in
neutral. The RailSounds sound system will be silent, except for the pantograph
sounds. Thereafter, it will start in forward after every power interruption lasting five
seconds or longer.
Use the HORN and BELL buttons on your transformer to activate those features. Refer to
page 15 if your transformer is not equipped with those buttons. Adjust the volume using the
volume control knob located under the removable roof-top hatch. Refer to Figure 1 on page 7.

Conventional transformer operations
Locking your locomotive into a single direction
hen the Command reverse unit switch is in the RUN position, your locomotive sequences
through a repeating pattern of operations: forward, neutral, reverse, neutral, and so on.
To “lock” your locomotive into a single direction (for example, to operate in forward only),
you can deactivate the Command reverse unit’s sequencing function. Refer to Figure 1 for the
location of the Command reverse unit switch.
W
1. Use your transformer’s DIRECTION button or interruptions in track power to get your
locomotive moving in the desired direction or into neutral.
2. Slow the locomotive down without stopping (reduce the throttle without turning off track
power).
3. Slide the Command reverse unit switch to the PROG position. At this point, the locomotive is
“locked” into your chosen direction.
To restore the forward-neutral-reverse sequence, turn off track power and slide the
Command reverse unit switch back to the RUN position.

Conventional transformer operations
Operating your pantographs in the conventional environment
Caution! To prevent damage to your locomotive, do not raise or lower the pantographs by
hand. Be sure that the pantographs have enough clearance on your layout.
Note! Be sure to remove the paper bands from around the pantographs before you operate
the locomotive.
our GG1 locomotive is equipped with two operating pantographs. Do not raise or lower the
pantographs by hand, or you will damage the locomotive. Be sure that the pantographs
clear all bridges, signals, and other objects on your layout. Refer to Figure 2 to determine the
proper clearance.
The operation of the pantographs corresponds with the direction of travel. When the
locomotive is in neutral, both pantographs are raised. If the locomotive travels forward, only the
rear pantograph is raised. If the locomotive travels backward, only the front pantograph is
raised. After a direction change, the lowered pantograph raises, and then there
is a ten-second delay before the pantographs change positions.

(continued)
Locking down the pantographs in the conventional environment
If you have bridges, signals, or other trackside structures with low clearance, you will need
to lock down the pantographs. Follow these steps to lock both pantographs in the lowered
position.
1. Turn off track power.
Note! You must turn off track power before sliding the RUN/DOWN switch to the DOWN
position.
2. With track power off, slide the RUN/DOWN switch to the DOWN position.
3. Be sure that the RUN/LOCKOUT switch is in the RUN position.
4. Power up the track. Both pantographs will lower.
Cycle the locomotive into neutral, then slide the RUN/DOWN switch to the RUN position to
resume automatic operation of the pantographs.
Locking the pantographs in your desired position
To lock the pantographs in any position (both up, both down, one up, one down, etc.),
simply operate the locomotive until the pantographs are in your desired position and slide the
RUN/LOCKOUT switch to the LOCKOUT position. Your locomotive will now operate with the
pantographs in your desired position. When you are ready to resume normal operations, cycle
the locomotive into neutral, then slide the switch back to the RUN position.
Operating the smoke unit in the conventional environment
our locomotive is equipped with a smoke unit to simulate the operation of the steam
generator. When the smoke unit switch is in the ON position, always be sure that there is a
small amount of smoke fluid in the smoke generator. To turn off the smoke unit, slide the
smoke unit switch to the OFF position. See Figure 1 on page 7 for the switch locations.
When you first power up your locomotive, the smoke unit requires approximately 30 seconds
to warm up. The smoke unit will automatically turn on for five seconds. The smoke unit will
also turn on for five seconds after every five minutes of continuous operation in a single
operational state (in forward, reverse, or neutral and after changes in direction) and after
changes in direction. Be sure to install a nine-volt battery for the smoke unit to
operate while the locomotive is in neutral. See page 12.
Y
Caution! Always be sure that there is smoke fluid in the smoke unit when the smoke unit
switch is in the ON position. When smoke production decreases, add more smoke
fluid as discussed on page 32.

Conventional transformer operations
Uncoupling your locomotive in the conventional environment
our locomotive features two ElectroCouplers that are released by remote control at any
point around your layout in the TrainMaster Command Control environment.
In the conventional environment, the ElectroCouplers will not open manually or by using a
Remote-Control Track section. To couple your locomotive in the conventional environment, you
must rely on a piece of rolling stock equipped with a magnetic coupler. Simply release the
magnetic coupler and couple the rolling stock to the locomotive, even if the ElectroCoupler is
closed.
Keep in mind that you may still make use of Lionel Remote-Control Track sections (6-65530
for O gauge; 6-12746 and 6-65149 for O-27 gauge; and 6-12020 for FasTrack layouts) with the
magnetic couplers on the rolling stock. Place the trigger disc on the magnetic coupler over the
central coil on the Remote-Control Track section, then press UNCOUPLE on the track section’s
controller. As illustrated in Figure 3, the magnetic field pulls the disc downward, releasing the
coupler.

RailSounds 5.0 sound system operations
RailSounds sound system operations
our locomotive is equipped with the Lionel RailSounds 5.0 sound system, the most realistic
model railroad sound system in the world. The RailSounds sound system brings the sounds
of the railroad to your layout through high quality sound recordings of real locomotives.
When you operate your locomotive in the conventional environment, you get the realistic
sounds of the electric motor, which automatically rev up as the speed of the locomotive
increases. You can sound the locomotive’s horn or activate the ringing of the mechanical bell.
CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom announcements are triggered with the horn button on your
controller. When you are through with operations and power down the track, your locomotive’s
RailSounds sound system starts a realistic shutdown sequence (a nine-volt alkaline battery is
required, see page 12).
When you operate your locomotive in the TrainMaster Command Control environment, you
get full control of the RailSounds 5.0 sound system. In addition to the horn and bell sounds, the
locomotive’s RPM sounds automatically rev up, and you can also set a particular RPM level
using your CAB-1 Remote Controller. In the Command Control environment, the release of the
ElectroCouplers is accompanied by a coupler release sound. Use the BRAKE button, and listen
for the sound of squealing metal. You can also trigger CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom
announcements, which simulate the interaction between the locomotive crew and the
dispatcher. Whenever you choose to shutdown your locomotive, the realistic shutdown sequence
commences (a nine-volt alkaline battery is required if track power is turned off, see page 12).
Y
11
RailSounds 5.0 sound system operations
Installing the battery
lthough the RailSounds sound system is powered through the track, we recommend that
you install a nine-volt alkaline battery to prevent the sound system from shutting down
during track power interruptions (for example, at a switch or a dirty section of track). Follow
these steps and refer to Figure 4 as you install the battery.
A
Note! If the RailSounds sound system turns off during interruptions in track power, you
may need to replace the battery.
1. Lift away the rear removable roof-top hatch.
2. Remove the protective cover from the battery harness.
3. Snap the battery harness onto the nine-volt alkaline battery’s terminals.
4. Slide the battery into the battery clip.
5. Replace the hatch. Two magnets secure the hatch to the roof.
Note! The roof hatches serve as your locomotive’s antenna. Be sure that the hatches are in
place before operating your locomotive in the TrainMaster Command Control
environment.

RailSounds 5.0 sound system operations
Using the RailSounds 5.0 sound system in the conventional environment
hen you first power up your locomotive, you will hear the sounds of the operating
pantographs and the locomotive at rest. As the locomotive moves, the RPM sounds
automatically increase with the locomotive’s speed. In the conventional environment, the horn
and bell sounds are activated by your transformer controls.
To silence the motor sounds, slide the RailSounds 5.0 sound system switch located on the
under the front roof-top hatch to the SIGNALSOUNDS position before you power up the
locomotive or after the locomotive has been powered down for a minimum of ten seconds. The
horn and bell sounds will still be active. To adjust the volume, use the volume control knob
located beneath the front roof-top hatch. Refer to Figure 1 on page 7.
W
Note! For proper operation of the RailSounds 5.0 sound system during track power
interruptions and for the locomotive shutdown sequence, you must install a nine-volt
alkaline battery. See page 12.
In the conventional environment, you will experience several features of the RailSounds 5.0
sound system.
• Eight levels of electric motor RPM. The level of electric motor RPM automatically
varies with your throttle adjustments.
• MultiHorn. A different horn sound at different speeds—a RailSounds sound system
exclusive.
• Mechanical bell. Press BELL on your transformer to begin the effect, then press BELL a
second time to discontinue the effect.
• CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom announcements. CrewTalk dialog is triggered by
your transformer’s HORN button.
• Reverse unit reset sound. Power down your track, wait three seconds, and listen for
the air-release sound—that’s the locomotive telling you that its Lionel Command reverse
unit has reset to forward.
• Shutdown sequence. When you turn off track power, you have two seconds to power up
again after you hear the reverse unit reset sound. If you do not restore power, you will hear
the realistic electric shutdown sequence. Because track power is off, a nine-volt battery is
required for this sequence to function.
• Pantograph sounds. Listen for the sounds of the spring-pneumatic equipment that
raises and lowers the pantographs.
• Steam generator blow-off sound. Listen for the blow-off sound of the steam
generator when the smoke unit turns on.
13
RailSounds 5.0 sound system operations
Activating the CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom announcements in
the conventional environment
n the conventional environment, CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom announcements are
triggered by short horn blasts and vary with the state of the locomotive.
• If the locomotive has been stopped for less than 15 seconds, a short horn blast triggers a
“please standby” dialog.
• If the locomotive has been stopped for longer than 15 seconds, a short horn blast triggers a
“cleared outbound” dialog.
• If the locomotive is moving, a short horn blast triggers an “all clear ahead” dialog.
• If the locomotive is moving with the bell activated, a short horn blast triggers a “slow to
caution” dialog.

RailSounds 5.0 sound system operations
Using the RailSounds 5.0 sound system in the TrainMaster Command
Control environment
o access all of the features of the RailSounds 5.0 sound system, you must operate your
locomotive in the TrainMaster Command Control environment. The CAB-1 Remote Controller
is required to activate features such as TowerCom announcements, CrewTalk communication, and
coupler release sounds. Refer to pages 21-31 to learn how the RailSounds 5.0 sound system is
integrated into TrainMaster Command Control operations.
T
Note! For proper operation of the RailSounds sound system during track power
interruptions and for the locomotive shutdown sequence, you must install a nine-volt
alkaline battery. See page 12.
In the TrainMaster Command Control environment, you will experience all of the features of
the RailSounds sound system.
• Eight levels of electric motor RPM. Your CAB-1 Remote Controller throttle
automatically determines the level of the electric motor RPM. You may also set the RPM
sounds to a particular level manually using your CAB-1 Remote Controller.
• MultiHorn. A different horn sound at different speeds—a RailSounds 5.0 sound system
exclusive.
• Mechanical bell. Press BELL on your CAB-1 Remote Controller to begin the effect, then
press BELL a second time to discontinue the effect.
• Squealing brakes. Press the BRAKE button and listen for the squealing of the
locomotive’s brakes as the locomotive slows down.
• Coupler release sounds. Use your CAB-1 Remote Controller to release an
ElectroCoupler, and you get the sounds of the coupler opening.
• CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom announcements. Use your CAB-1 Remote Controller
to trigger conversations between the dispatcher and locomotive engineer. You’ll hear “hold for
clearance,” “cleared for departure,” and many other exchanges. See pages 17 and 18.
• Shutdown sequence. When you turn off track power, you have two seconds to power up
again after you hear the reverse unit reset sound. If you do not restore power, you will hear
the realistic electric shutdown sequence. Because track power is off, a nine-volt battery is
required for this sequence to function. You may also trigger the shutdown sequence using
AUX1, 5 command without powering down the track.
• Pantograph sounds. Listen for the sounds of the spring-pneumatic equipment that
raises and lowers the pantographs.
• Steam generator blow-off sound. Listen for the blow-off sound of the steam
generator when the smoke unit turns on.

RailSounds 5.0 sound system operations
Activating the CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom announcements in
the Command Control environment
ith the RailSounds 5.0 sound system, CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom announcements
feature a variety of brief radio conversations between the engineer and dispatcher. All
dialog is intelligible, and each comment is followed by at least one automatic response.
CrewTalk dialog is an engineer-initiated radio conversation with the dispatcher. TowerCom
announcements are a dispatcher-initiated radio conversation with the engineer. Be sure to listen
for the different combinations of words and phrases that comprise these exchanges.
Refer to Table 1 below for the dialog commands. The dialog in the table provides examples of

Odyssey System operations
The Odyssey System
he Odyssey System is “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 digitally-controlled system also allows for
extremely slow movement that will amaze any “scale” enthusiast.
T
Odyssey System conventional (transformer) operation
he Odyssey System is automatically active when you operate your locomotive in
conventional (non-Command Control) mode, as long as the Odyssey switch is in the ON
position (see Figure 1 on page 7). 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 the locomotive are connected directly to
track power. Do not exceed 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.
19
Odyssey System operations
Odyssey System Command Control operation
hen the Odyssey System is activated, changes in the speed of the locomotive will
correspond to each signal from the Command Base. For example, when you address the
locomotive and slowly turn the throttle knob, the first flash of the light on the Command Base
corresponds to the first speed step, which is the slowest speed of the locomotive. The locomotive
will maintain that speed until you increase or decrease the throttle.
In the TrainMaster Command Control environment, you can use your CAB-1 Remote
Controller to turn the Odyssey System on or off. The position of the Odyssey System switch (see
Figure 1 on page 7) is the Odyssey System default setting when you power up the locomotive.
You can override the default setting with the following commands. The override settings will be
cleared and the default setting will be restored when you power down the locomotive.
Do not wait longer than two or three seconds between pushing the buttons in each sequence.
If the command is not accepted, repeat the sequence.
W
Note! The locomotive must be in “neutral” when you enable or disable the Odyssey System.
Turn off the Odyssey System.
Note! When you press 7, you will trigger a TowerCom announcement. This has no impact
on the Odyssey System function.
Turn on the Odyssey System.
Note! When you press 9, you will activate the Air release sound and turn on the smoke unit
for five seconds of operation if the smoke unit switch is in the ON position. This has
no impact on the Odyssey System.

TrainMaster Command Control operations
TrainMaster Command Control operations
rainMaster Command Control is the advanced model railroad control system from Lionel. To
operate your locomotive in the Command Control environment, you need a Command Base
(available separately, 6-12911) and a CAB-1 Remote Controller (available separately, 6-12868).
Your commands are sent by the CAB-1 Remote Controller to the Command Base, which then
translates the command into digital code. That code is sent through the outside rails to your
locomotive, which will not respond until it recognizes its unique ID#. TrainMaster Command
Control gives you the power to operate multiple Command-equipped locomotives on the same
track at the same time.
Keep in mind that track power is like gasoline in the tank of a car—it gives you the power
to go places, but it doesn’t tell you where to go or how fast to get there.
T
Operating your locomotive in the Command Control environment
Note! Be sure to remove the paper bands from around the pantographs before you operate
the locomotive.
1. Turn off track power and plug-in the Command Base. Be sure that the
Command Base is connected to the outside rail or to the Common/Ground/U terminal on
your track power supply.
2. Place your locomotive on Lionel or Lionel-compatible O-72 or larger
track.
3. Increase track voltage to full power or 19 volts AC. On PowerMasters, slide the
CMD/CONV switch to CMD. Program Track Power Controllers to Command Control
operation.
4. Press ENG, enter the ID#, and press AUX1 for the prototypical pantograph
start-up sequence with pantograph sounds followed by the full RailSounds sound

Operating the pantographs in the Command Control environment
Caution! To prevent damage to your locomotive, do not raise or lower the pantographs by
hand.
Note! Be sure to remove the paper bands from around the pantographs before you operate
the locomotive.
our GG1 locomotive is equipped with two operating pantographs. Do not raise or lower the
pantographs by hand or you will damage the locomotive. Be sure that the pantographs
clear all bridges, signals, and other objects on your layout. Refer to Figure 2 on page 8 to
determine the proper clearance.
Normally, the operation of the pantographs is prototypical and automatically corresponds
with the direction of travel. If the locomotive travels forward, only the rear pantograph is raised.
If the locomotive travels backward, only the front pantograph is raised.
You may also override this automatic operation and control the position of the pantographs
manually, as described below.
Y
Manual Control of Pantographs
The pantographs on your GG1 may be controlled manually using the 6 button on your CAB-1
Remote Controller. Using this function you may cycle your GG1's pantographs through all four
combinations of UP and DOWN positions.
To start manual control of the pantographs, press AUX1, 6 while your locomotive is stopped.
Both pantographs will move to the UP position. If you press 6 again after a minimum of three
seconds but within ten seconds, the pantographs will cycle to the next position. If you wait more than
ten seconds, the 6 button will no longer cycle the pantographs (this allows you to use the 6 button to
control the engine RPMs manually - see page 27). If you wish to resume manual control of the
pantographs, simply press AUX1, 6 again and the pantographs will cycle to their next position.
Note that you may not change the position of the pantographs while the locomotive in in
motion.
Also note that once you start to control the pantographs manually, the normal automatic
operation is suppressed and changing your locomotive's direction will not change the
pantograph position. To resume normal automatic operation, press AUX1, 0 to reset the engine.
Locking down the pantographs
Note! You must turn off track power before sliding the RUN/DOWN switch to the DOWN or
RUN position.
If you have bridges, signals, or other trackside structures with low clearance, you will need to
lock down the pantographs. To lock the pantographs in the down position, turn off track power,
then slide the RUN/DOWN switch to the DOWN position. To resume normal operation, turn
track power off, then slide the switch back to the RUN position.

Maintaining and servicing your locomotive
Adding fluid to your locomotive’s smoke generator
our locomotive is equipped with a smoke generator that produces a safe, clean, white
smoke during operation. In order to function, the smoke generator requires the periodic
addition of Lionel smoke fluid. A small bottle of smoke fluid is included with your locomotive.
To add smoke fluid, lift away the roof-top hatch. Press down and unscrew the cap of the
smoke fluid bottle, then pierce the tip of the nozzle with a pin. Add 10 to 15 drops of fluid into
the hole as illustrated in Figure 6. When smoke production decreases, be sure to add four to
eight additional drops of smoke fluid.
If you prefer to operate your locomotive without smoke, locate the smoke unit switch and
slide it to the OFF position. Refer to Figure 5 for the location of this switch.
When the smoke unit switch is in the ON position, always keep a small amount of smoke
fluid in the smoke unit. Operating your locomotive’s smoke unit without smoke fluid will cause
damage to the heating element.
