Lionel Legacy System
« on: August 01, 2017, 01:26:23 pm »
I was interested in buying the Lionel Legacy System and I was wondering how to connect a conventional engine to it. I own the Polar Express and I was wondering how to connect it because I've looked all over the internet and it says I can do it but I don't know if I need a Tmcc or something else. I'm also wondering if you can connect Lionchief trains to the Legacy System. Thanks

Once you have the Legacy system, you just put your Polar Express train on the track and use the Legacy remote to operate it.

This video explains how:

So what your saying is I use the Legacy Remote and go to conventional mode and then I can run the train? Could I run other command engines at the same time or not?

You cannot run both conventional and command locomotives at the same time.

In conventional mode, the system is set to vary the track voltage with the remote - just like a conventional transformer does.

In command mode, the track is set to maximum voltage constantly, and the remote varies the engine speed with the electronics in the locomotives.

Alright the last thing I'm going to ask is there any online retailers that you recommend for buying command or Legacy engines?

I worked at this store when I lived in New York City. I did repairs there for them. I also helped with shipping at times. They ship worldwide.
