Running your locomotive
Note! Power your locomotive with an alternating-current (50-60Hz AC) transformer only. Powering your locomotive with a direct-current (DC) transformer, or in excess of 19 volts AC, may result in damage to sensitive electronic components.
Note! Your locomotive requires Lionel or Lionel-compatible O-36 or larger track curves.
LEGACY Control operations
F
or the finest operating experience, your locomotive is fully compatible with the LEGACY Control
System. To operate in LEGACY mode, you need a LEGACY Command Base and LEGACY CAB-2
Remote Controller (6-14295).
Your commands are sent by the CAB-2 Remote Controller to the Command Base, which sends
a digital code through the rails to your locomotive. Your locomotive will not respond until it
recognizes its unique ID#, so you can operate multiple Command-equipped locomotives on the
same track at the same time.
1. Turn off track power, and then plug in the
LEGACY Base and connect it to the track.
2. Place your locomotive on the track.
3. Increase track power voltage to full power
(no more than 19 volts AC). If a circuit breaker
trips when you turn on the Lionel power supply, check
the wheels of your locomotive to make sure they are all
securely on the track. Check to make sure the track is free
of all metals that may cause a short circuit.
4. As illustrated in Figure 1, press ENG and 1
(or your selected ENG ID#) to address the
locomotive with your LEGACY CAB-2 Remote
Figure 1. LEGACY engine selection
Controller.
5. Press the Start Up button on your LEGACY
CAB-2 Remote, shown in Figure 2. Then,
throttle up and move 'em out! Your engine sound
will start up, and the locomotive-specific touch screen
buttons will populate the remote. For more information
on operating your locomotive set with the LEGACY
system, please refer to the LEGACY section of this manual.
Additional information is also found in the LEGACY
System Manual, available online at www.lionel.com.

Running your locomotive
Note! Power your locomotive with an alternating-current (50-60Hz AC) transformer only.
Powering your locomotive with a direct-current (DC) transformer, or in excess of 19 volts AC, may result in damage to sensitive electronic components.
Note! Your locomotive requires Lionel or Lionel-compatible O-36 or larger track curves.
TrainMaster Command Control (TMCC) operations
F
or operation in the TrainMaster Command Control environment, you need a TrainMaster
Command Base (6-12911) and a CAB-1 Remote Controller (6-12868). Refer to your TMCC
System Manual for complete information. To access all the locomotive's features, you
must operate in the LEGACY environment, as discussed on the previous page.
Your commands are sent by the CAB-1 Remote Controller to the Command Base, which
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.
1. Turn off track power, and then plug in the Command Base and connect it to the
track.
2. Place your locomotive on the track.
3. Increase track voltage to full power (no more than 19 volts AC). If a circuit
breaker trips when you turn on the Lionel power supply, check the wheels of your locomotive to
make sure they are all securely on the track. Check to make sure the track is free of all metals
that may cause a short circuit.
4. Press ENG and 1 (or the ENG ID# you set) to address your locomotive with
your CAB-1 Remote Controller.
5. Throttle up and move ‘em out.
For more information, please refer to the TrainMaster Command Control operations section of
this manual or the TMCC System Manual, available online at www.lionel.com.

Running your locomotive
Conventional transformer operations
Note!
Note!
Note!
For Conventional operation, a Command Base must not be powered up anywhere in the area, even if it is not connected to the track. If a base is detected, your locomotive set will default to Command mode.
Power your locomotive with an alternating-current (50-60Hz AC) transformer only. Powering your locomotive with a direct-current (DC) transformer, or in excess of
19 volts AC, may result in damage to sensitive electronic components.
Your locomotive set requires Lionel or Lionel-compatible O-36 or larger track curves.
1. With track power off, place your locomotive on the track.
2. Power up the track. If a circuit breaker trips when you turn on the Lionel power supply,
check the wheels of your locomotive to make sure they are all securely on the track. Check to
make sure the track is free of all metals that may cause a short circuit.
3. Move ‘em out! Press the DIRECTION button on your transformer to sequence your
locomotive through the repeating pattern of operations: neutral, 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 and after power
interruptions lasting longer than five seconds, it will start out in neutral.
We recommend that you operate your LEGACY locomotive with Odyssey II
Speed Control turned on. You may choose to operate your locomotive without speed control
by placing the Odyssey II Speed Control System switch to the NO ODY position. See Figure 4 on page
8 for the location of the switch.

Locomotive basics
Adding smoke fluid to your locomotive’s smoke generator
Y
our locomotive is equipped with a smoke generator that produces safe, clean, white smoke
during operation. Add 10-20 drops to the duct (shown in Figure 3) to prime the units the first
time you run the locomotive or after being stored for an extended period of time, and then add 10 to
20 drops to refill when smoke production decreases. When refilling, DO NOT EXCEED 20 DROPS as
this can cause your smoke unit to become oversaturated allowing leakage onto the electronics. Note
that operating your locomotives’ smoke unit without smoke fluid will cause damage to the heating
element.
If you prefer to operate your locomotive without smoke, locate the smoke unit switch on the
locomotive and slide it to the NO SMK position. Refer to Figure 4 on page 8 for the location of the
switch.
Note! For best performance, we recommend using Lionel smoke fluid only.

Locomotive basics
Lash-ups (for LEGACY operations only)
I
n the Command environment, building a lash-up allows you to control multiple powered
and non-powered locomotives as one in a prototypical manner. It is still possible to
control any of the engines in the lash-up individually. When you issue a train command, the
individual engine you were controlling will return to the group. If there is a difference in
speed, the individual engine will return to the speed of the lash-up at the rate set in the train
momentum.
To build a lash-up, assign a unique engine
(ENG) ID# to each unit. See page 10 for details.
1. Address the train ID# you wish to create or edit, 1

LEGACY Control System operations
Note! This section is a brief overview of the LEGACY Control System. For a more in-depth explanation of the LEGACY Control System features, please see your LEGACY Control System Operations Manual, available online at www.lionel.com.
The Velocity Throttle
The Velocity Throttle (the red rotary knob on the bottom of your Lionel
remote) is used to start your engine moving, slow it down, or speed it up. Use it
simply by turning it clockwise (speed up) or counter-clockwise (slow down).
The Multi-Controller
Direction
The direction of your engine toggles between forward and reverse at the
touch of the Multi-Controller. Press the center of the Multi-Controller once,
and your engine's lights will change directions and the engine will stop until
you throttle up again in the new direction.
Boost & Brake
Boost and brake give you another way to control the speed of your train.
Boost gives your loco a temporary increase in tractive power, and returns to the
previous speed when you release the control, while the brake command slows
you down more quickly than the Velocity Throttle alone.
The Train Brake Slider
The Train Brake is used to slow down and limit the top
speed of your train by adding a load. The more the Train
Brake is applied by pulling the Train Brake Slider down, the
more laboring is heard from the engine. Eventually Train
Brake application will slow down the train and it is even
possible to stop a train by pulling the Train Brake Slider all
the way down. If your smoke unit is turned on, you'll also
see more smoke as the slider is pulled down.
12
LEGACY Control System operations
Warning Sound Controller
Warning sounds are an important part of Lionel Railroading. Your
Lionel Legacy Control System equipped engines have a real-time variable
"quilling" horn.
Blow the Horn by pulling down on the Warning Sound Controller.
Notice the difference in intensity of the horn sound.
Strike the bell once by pushing the Warning Sound Controller up and
releasing quickly. To activate continuous bell sounds, push the Warning
Sound Controller up and hold it for 1.5 seconds. To discontinue the bell
sounds, push and hold the Warning Sound Controller up until the bell
stops.
The Speed Bar
The Speed Bar is used to select a new
touch-screen Icon Control set. This set of
touch-screen keys is used to select prototypical
preset speeds. The speed of the engine changes
with each press and release of a different Preset
Speed key.
• Tap a key, and your locomotive set will
immediately begin moving to that speed.
• Press and hold a key, and you'll hear the
dispatcher radio the engineer and order
him to move to that speed.
• If you hold the key until the dialog is
finished, the engineer will indicate that
he is "increasing to...", "slowing to...", or
"we are at..." the command speed.
You can also use the Velocity Throttle
and other action controls in this mode and
continue to use Preset speeds at the same time.
Press AUX1 to leave the Preset speed mode and return to the Standard Control Panel. Press
the speed bar to toggle between the Speed Control Panel and the Standard Control Panel.
Note! Switcher engines do not have preset speed dialog.

Conventional transformer operations
Locking your locomotive into a single direction
W
hen the Command reverse unit switch is in the RUN position on the powered unit, 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.
1. Use your transformer’s DIRECTION button or interruptions in track power
to get your locomotive moving slowly in the desired direction or into
neutral.
2. Slide the Command reverse unit switch on the powered unit to the PGM
position. At this point, the locomotive is “locked” into your chosen
direction. See Figure 4 on page 8 for the location of this switch.
To restore the forward-neutral-reverse sequence, just slide the Command reverse unit
switch back to the RUN position.

Odyssey II Speed Control system operations
Odyssey II Speed Control operations
T
he Odyssey II Speed Control system is “cruise control” for your locomotive. Once the speed control
is set, your locomotive will maintain a constant speed, no matter what load is placed on the locomotive or what grades you have on your layout. The Odyssey II Speed Control system also allows for
extremely slow movement that will amaze any scale enthusiast.
Odyssey II Speed Control LEGACY Control operation
I
n LEGACY Control System CAB-2 mode, Odyssey II Speed Control system provides 0-199 speed steps.
For a more in-depth explanation of the LEGACY Control System features, please see your LEGACY
Control System operations manual, available online at www.lionel.com.
Odyssey II Speed Control TrainMaster Command Control operation
W
hen the Odyssey II Speed Control 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 red 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 TrainMaster Command Control CAB-1 mode, Odyssey II Speed Control System now
provides selectable resolution and momentum. See the table on page 20.
Odyssey II Speed Control conventional transformer operation
T
he Odyssey II Speed Control system is automatically operational when you operate your locomotive set in conventional (non-Command Control) mode, as long as the Odyssey II Speed Control
system switch is in the ON position (see Figure 4 on page 8). 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.
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 II Speed Control system using the Odyssey II Speed
Control switch (see Figure 4 on page 8).
19
Maintaining and servicing your locomotive
Reprogramming your locomotive to restore features
I
f your locomotive is unresponsive to your commands in the Command Control environment, we
recommend that you follow this procedure to reset your locomotive. All factory default settings will
be restored when you reprogram the locomotive.
1. Slide the Program-Run switch to the PGM position.
2. Plug in and connect your LEGACY Base.
3. Place your locomotive on the track, then power up the track. Reprogram
only one unit at a time.
4. Press ENG and enter the locomotive set’s ID#.
5. Press SET.
6. Turn off track power and wait ten seconds.
7. Slide the program run switch back to the RUN position.
At this point, your locomotive has been reset. Restore power to the track and operate the
locomotive set as usual. Be sure to use the ID# entered in Step 4.

Maintaining and servicing your locomotive
Lubricating your locomotive
H
elp your Lionel locomotive lead a long and productive life on your railroad by maintaining
it properly. To keep your locomotive lubricated, we recommend that you purchase a Lionel
Lubrication and Maintenance Kit (6-62927), available from your authorized Lionel dealer.
When you find that the lubrication points illustrated in Figure 8 appear dry, lubricate
your locomotive after you have removed any accumulated dirt and dust. There are two basic
rules to keep in mind when you are lubricating your locomotive: use only a small amount of
lubrication and avoid getting grease or oil on your locomotive’s wheels, roller pick-ups, or the
track.
