Title: Need help with wiring on the 8-85015 - L/S Milwaukee Road GP-20 (Command Ready)
Post by: OldNoob on October 01, 2020, 10:30:45 am
Ok so i got in touch with Lionel support and they said they do not have a wiring schematic for my particular engine. Weird i know. its the 8-85015 - L/S Milwaukee Road GP-20 (Command Ready) Apparently its not like any of the other G scale engines that Lionel produced not even its sister engine the Burlington Norther GP-20.   if anyone has this engine, i need a photograph of the main board and where the cab lights plug in. i guessed at it and they work ,but i want to be sure. Thanks.

OldNoob...
Hello & Welcome to the Forum!
Those Lionel LS GP's still show up on folks' layout's..
I haven't encountered one myself, but am aware of fellow hobbyist's who run them.
Here's a link for playing the hunt for a lionel wiring diagram game...

Good Luck...
You might try the Large Scale Central Forum for help, there are members there who do operate those GP's..
