Basic Operation
Throttle Throttle up the power to your track. Advance the throttle until 12 – 16 volts is
applied, then put the subway set into forward motion by either firmly pressing the
Direction button on your transformer or remote once or dropping and advancing the
throttle.
Bell - To sound the bell, quickly press and release the Bell button. If you press the button
for too long, you will trigger the Transit Announcement Sounds described later in this
book. To turn the bell off, press and release the Bell button again. The bell will continue to
ring from the time you turn it on until you press and release the button again to turn it off.
Horn/Whistle - To sound the horn, firmly press the Horn/Whistle button. The horn will
sound for as long as you continue to depress the button. It will stop when you release the
button. The horn has four different endings, depending on whether you hold the button for
less than three seconds, three seconds, four seconds, or five seconds or longer.
Direction Your train is programmed to start in neutral. The first direction from neutral
upon start-up is forward. Firmly press and release the Direction button to allow the engine
to move forward. Just as you must stop your automobile between forward and reverse, this
engine will not go directly from forward to reverse; it goes into neutral between directions.
If the train has been moving forward, the first press
Cycle Phases
of the Direction button will put the train from
forward into neutral, the second press into reverse,
Neutral
the third press back into neutral, and the fourth back
Reverse
Forward
into forward. To prevent accidental high-speed startNeutral
ups, this engine is programmed to restart in neutral
each time the track voltage is turned off for
approximately 25 seconds or more.
Manual Volume Control

Transit Announcement Sounds (TAS)
Your Proto-Sound 2.0 street car is equipped with operator controlled Transit Announcement
Sounds, hereafter known as TAS. This easy-to-use feature plays digitally reproduced transit
announcements and platform action sounds whenever you activate and stop your engine.
No additional wires or modifications are needed on your layout to enjoy these amazing
sound effects. These different sounds are heard each time you give a long bell button press.
The entire TAS sequence is designed to simulate the arrival, disembarking, embarking, and
departure of a transit stop. The sounds include the driver announcing the stop and the
upcoming stop, passenger disembarking and embarking sounds, driver to passenger
requests, door openings and closing and general transit stop sounds. After the station
sounds have finished, the engine will shift back into gear and, if the throttle is set high
enough, will pull away from the station. To activate the TAS, press and hold the bell button
for approximately 2 seconds.

2. Learn Mode
In Learn Mode, the engine may be programmed with either an "Out & Back" route or a
"Loop" route. An "Out & Back" route begins at the 1st station (as programmed by the
operator), stops at intermediate stations, ends at the last station, then reverses its route until
it reaches the 1st station. A "Loop" route begins at the 1st station (as programmed by the
operator), stops at intermediate stations, ends at the last station, and then begins the route
over again at the 1st station.

the direction button. Note: if you stop the engine with the throttle control, you must reapply power so that the engine goes into neutral and does not shut down.
R-17 Subway Set with Proto-Sound® 2.0
2. Enter Learn Mode by pressing Horn-Bell-Bell-Bell-Bell. The train will then announce
that you have entered Learn Mode.
3. Press and hold the Bell button to scroll through the available stations until you hear the
one that you would like to be your first stop. Release the button quickly as soon as you
have heard the desired stop name.
4. Press and hold the Horn button until a "saved" response confirms that station's location
and name are saved in memory.
5. Proceed to the next stop by pressing the Direction button.
6. Press the Direction button to stop the train again when you have reached the next
desired station location.
7. Using the Bell button, select the name of the station, then save using the Horn button.
8. Repeat steps 5-7 until you are ready to program the last stop in the route.
9. The manner of saving the last station in the route determines whether the route will be
an "Out & Back" or "Loop" route.
"Out & Back"
Follow steps 5-7 to save the last station. After you press the Horn button and
the sound system plays the "Saved" confirmation, press the Horn button again.
Another "Saved" confirmation will play and the car will exit Learn Mode and
enter Manual Mode.
“Loop"
Follow steps 5-7 to save the last station. Press the Direction button once to
start the car in forward and stop the car at the location of the first stop by
pressing the Direction button. Press the Bell button as many times as is
necessary to hear the name of the first stop. Press the Horn button until the
"Saved" confirmation is played. The car will then automatically exit Learn
Mode and enter Manual Mode.
Notes:
Always approach a desired station stop location while running in Forward. Learn mode
counts distance traveled, not actual physical locations. However, unlike an automobile's
odometer, Proto-Sound 2.0 Learn Mode does erase distance when traveling in reverse. If
you operate your car past the desired stop location, you may back it up to the desired

Proto-Coupler® Operation
This locomotive is equipped with one coil-wound Proto-Coupler for remote uncoupling
action. Because Proto-Couplers are controlled through the Proto-Sound 2.0 microprocessor,
they do not require an uncoupling track section or modification to your layout to function.
You can fire a coupler from neutral or while in motion. Use the code shown below (and in
the chart on p. 7) to fire the coupler(s).
Front Coupler:
To fire the front coupler, quickly tap the Bell button once followed by four quick taps of the
Horn button, allowing approximately ½ second to lapse between each quick button press.
The sound of the liftbar and air line depletion will play, and the knuckle will be released.

Speed Control
M.T.H. engines equipped with Proto-Sound 2.0 have speed control capabilities that allow
the engine to maintain a constant speed up and down grades and around curves, much like
an automobile cruise control. You can add or drop cars on the run, and the engine will
maintain the speed you set.
While the engine is programmed to start with the speed control feature activated, you can
opt to turn it off. This means the engine's speed will fall as it labors up a hill and increase
as it travels downward. It is also affected by the addition or releasing of cars while on the
run. Because the engine will run more slowly at a given throttle voltage when speed control
is on than when it is off, you should adjust the throttle to a lower power level for operation
with speed control off to avoid high-speed derailments. When speed control is off, the
volume will drop to allow for better low voltage operation.
To turn speed control on and off, put the engine in neutral, then quickly tap the
transformer's Horn button one time then quickly tap the Bell button two times, allowing
approximately ½ second to lapse between each quick button press. Two horn blasts will
indicate that the engine has made the change. Repeat the 1 horn, 2 bells code to return it to
the other condition. You will want to do this during the initial neutral upon start-up if you
ever couple this engine to another engine that is not equipped with speed control to avoid

Locking Locomotive Into A Direction
You can lock your engine into a direction (forward, neutral, or reverse) so that it will not
change directions. To do this, put the engine into the direction you want (or into neutral to
lock it into neutral), run it at a very slow crawl (as slowly as it will move without halting),
and quickly but firmly tap the Horn button once followed by three quick taps of the Bell
button, allowing approximately ½ second to lapse between each quick button press. Two
horn blasts will indicate that the engine has made the change. The engine will not change
direction (including going into neutral) until you repeat the 1 horn, 3 bells code to return
the engine to its normal condition, even if the engine is kept without power for extended
periods of time.

Certain Proto-Sound 2.0 sound effects automatically play in programmed conventional
mode conditions:
• Squealing Brakes play any time the engine's speed decreases rapidly.
• Platform Action sounds play at random intervals when the engine idles in neutral.
• Engine Start-up and Shut-down sounds play when the engine is initially powered on or is
powered off for five seconds or more.

Maintenance
Lubricating and Greasing Instructions
The engine should be well oiled and greased in order to run properly.
DO NOT
OVER OIL
Regularly lubricate all axles and linkage components and pickup rollers
to prevent squeaking. Use light household oil, such as that found in
M.T.H.'s maintenance kit. Do not over oil. Use only a drop or two on
each pivot point.

Figure 3
The locomotive’s internal gearing was greased at the factory and should not need additional
grease until after 50 hours of operation or one year, whichever comes first. Follow the
greasing instructions below. Note that in some tightly packed engines you may need to
move internal components temporarily in order to access the gears.
1. Remove the four Phillips screws from the chassis, as seen in Figure 3, then lift the body
partially away from the chassis. Unplug three connectors (2 pin type) located at the front of
the car to separate the body completely from the chassis.
2. Remove the four Interior Detail Screws shown in Figure 3 and separate the interior
detail from the chassis.
3. Once the motor mount screw has been removed, pull the motor away from the truck
block and lightly coat the motor worm gear and bronze drive gear (in the truck block) with
grease.
4. Reassemble the truck and motor, being careful not to pinch any wires between the truck
block and motor mount.
14
R-17 Subway Set with Proto-Sound® 2.0
5. Repeat the procedure for the other motor
and truck.
6. Reassemble the chassis and body, being
careful that the wires are not caught between
the body and chassis, as this can lead to a
short that may damage the electronics
beyond repair.
7. Before replacing body mount screws, test
the unit on powered track to make sure all
light housings are in place and functioning.
Replace screws and door slider handles.
Periodically check the locomotive wheels and
pickups for dirt and buildup, which can cause
poor electrical contact and traction as well
as prematurely wear out the neoprene
traction tires.
Lubricate Worm Gear
Cleaning the Wheels, Tires and Track
Periodically check the locomotive wheels and
pickups for dirt and buildup, which can cause
poor electrical contact and traction and
prematurely wear out the neoprene traction tires.
Wheels and tires can be cleaned using denatured
(not rubbing) alcohol applied with a cotton
swab.
To clean the track, use a clean rag and RailKing Track Cleaning Fluid or
denatured (not rubbing) alcohol. Unplug the transformer and wipe the rails of
the track, turning the rag frequently to ensure that you are using clean cloth on
the rails. Because the manufacturing process leaves a coat on RealTrax, you
should clean the rails after the first 30 minutes of use (you may smell
something burning during initial use as the coat burns off; this is normal).
Thereafter, keep an eye on the track and clean it when it gets dirty to ensure
good electrical contact and to lengthen the life of the tires.

Self Charging Battery Back-Up
The 2.4v NiCad self-charging battery pack recharges continuously during train operation
and should last for up to five years. It is a battery type that should not leak or cause any
damage to your engine. Depending upon when your engine was built, the battery may need
to be charged right out of the box.
If engine sounds seem distorted or garbled at low voltages or become silent when power
from the transformer is turned off, test the batteries to determine whether the battery should
be recharged or replaced.
Test: Put the engine in neutral and leave the track voltage at 10-12 volts (high enough for
the lights to shine brightly) for 15 minutes.
Recharge: If the sounds are improved at the end of the 15-minute test charge, the batteries
charge has run down and can be recharged. There are a number of ways you can do this:
Leave the engine in neutral with track
voltage at 10-12 volts for 6-7 hours so
the batteries can fully recharge (if your
engine has a smoke unit, be sure it is
turned off).
Use M.T.H.'s battery recharger (sold
separately) that plugs into a wall outlet
and a special port under the engine to
recharge the batteries overnight without
leaving it on the track. (See figure 11)
Replace: If the sounds are not improved
at the end of the 15-minute test charge,
it is time to replace the batteries. Available
through M.T.H. Parts. (See figure 10)

R-17 Subway Set with Proto-Sound® 2.0
Traction Tire Replacement
Your subway set is equipped with two neoprene rubber traction tires on each
powered truck block. While these tires are extremely durable, you may need to
replace them at some point.
First, remove the truck sides from the
truck block. To do this, turn your
engine upside down and remove the
truckside mounting screws as seen
in (figure 12).
Screws to Remove Trucksides
Once the truck sides have
been removed:
1. Make sure the old tire has been
completely removed from the groove
in the drive wheel, using a razor
blade or small flathead screwdriver
to pry away any remains.
Figure 12
2. Slip the new tire onto the wheel. You may find it useful to use two small
flathead screwdrivers to stretch the tire over the wheel.
3. If you twist the tire while stretching it over the wheel, you will need to
remove and reinstall the tire. Otherwise your engine will wobble
while operating.
4. Make sure the tire is fully seated inside the groove. Use a razor blade to trim
away any excess tire that doesn’t seat itself inside the groove properly.
5. Reassemble in reverse order.
One set of replacement tires is packaged with the model. Additional tires are
available directly from the M.T.H. Parts Department (order online: www.mthrailking.com, e-mail: parts@mth-railking.com; mail: 7020 Columbia Gateway
Drive, Columbia MD 21046-1532, FAX: 410-381-6122).

Troubleshooting Proto-Sound® 2.0 Problems
Although Proto-Sound 2.0 has been designed and engineered for ease of use, you may
have some questions during initial operation. The following table should answer most
questions. If your problem cannot be resolved with this table, contact M.T.H. for
assistance (telephone: 410-381-2580; fax: 410-423-0009; service@mth-railking.com,
7020 Columbia Gateway Drive, Columbia MD 21046-1532).
Starting Up
Remedy
When I press the horn button, the bell comes on
That is normal for this model.
instead.
I can't get any sound to play when I press the horn You may be pressing the button too quickly to trigger the
button.
bell. Try pressing the horn button more slowly, taking
approximately one full second to fully depress the button.
Bell
Remedy
When I press the bell button, I get a station stop
announcement, not the bell.
Coupler
You are holding the bell button too long. Press it for
only about one second to trigger the bell.
Remedy
When I try to fire the coupler, TAS starts.
The Proto-Coupler won't let the engine uncouple
on the fly.
The coupler does not fire or stay coupled.
Platform Action Sounds
Sometimes the Platform Action Sounds don't play.
Lock-out
You are waiting too long between horn button presses.
Try lubricating the coupler knuckle and rivet with a dry
graphite lubricant.
The coupler needs to be cleaned. Wipe with denatured
alcohol (not rubbing alcohol) and let dry.
Remedy
Platform Action Sounds play only in neutral at random
intervals.
Remedy
I can't get the engine to run after I power up the
transformer. It sits still with the diesel and
compressor sounds running.
The engine won't lock into forward, neutral, or
reverse.
Volume
The engine is locked into the neutral position. Follow
the procedure in the "Lock into a Direction" section.
Engine speed must be below 10 scale mph (approx. 10
volts or less in conventional mode).
Remedy
The sounds seem distorted, especially when the
horn or bell is activated.
No Sound
Battery
Proto-Sound 2.0 volume is set too high. Turn the
volume control knob on the bottom of the chassis
counter-clockwise to reduce the volume.
Volume is set too low, adjust volume control knob on the
bottom of the chassis clockwise to increase the volume
or check connector to speaker.
Remedy
The engine will not leave the initial neutral setting.
I get no sounds when the engine shifts between
directions.
After I turn off my transformer, my engine
continues to make sounds before quitting.
Check to be sure the battery is installed and fully charged.
See the "Self-Charging Battery Back-Up" section.
The battery may be dead or need to be charged. See the
"Self-Charging Battery Back-Up" section.
Proto-Sound 2.0 is designed to continue to sound for a
few seconds after power to the track has been shut off to
allow for a more realistic shut-down.

Transformer Compatibility and Wiring Chart
Proto-Sound 2.0 is designed to work with most standard AC transformers. The chart below
lists the many compatible transformers. Note that many of the operational commands
described in these instructions require a bell button, so if your transformer does not have its
own bell button, you should consider adding one to get the full benefit of the system. In
addition, the chart details how the terminals on these transformers should be attached to
your layout.
