Greetings Everyone,

this is my first post.  Does anyone know what the problem is when the light continually flashes on the lionchief remote control?  It's a brand new set, new batteries.  Turn it on and starts to immediately flash.  It will not control the train at all.  The light will never turn solid red.  Any help is appreciated.

Well, it was completely free in the past 7 years while it was in beta stage of the development.

And it it still completely free now for creating and editing of small layouts (up to 100 tracks/objects).

But if you want to use the new SCARM v. 1.0 for larger layouts, be so good and pay the license fee - $30 is less than single new Lionel turnout.

If you donated or already has a license for MTS PE, you will get a free license key for the new version of SCARM. But you didn't, right? ;)

NOT FREE AT ALL.

After you start to learn how to use it a little, BAM! A message pops up to inform you that you are only allowed to lay 50 pieces of track and NOW YOU HAVE TO PAY $30.00 to continue.

FREE is not $30.00! What layout has <50 pieces of track that you would need this for?

Idunno? Very MIS LEADING.

Hi. Any guesses as to what model and approximate year of manufacture this Lionel is? It was found in a plowed field believe it or not!

Thanks. Rob.

I did some digging. I looked and looked at cast steam locomotives and I think I've found a winner - the Lionel 1654 (1946-47) and 1655 (1948-49). They share the same boiler casting. The boiler casting appears to be an exact match. this is an early postwar 4-driver lower-end locomotive that initially predates Lionel's first plastic boiler steamer.

I found the attached photo on the Internet of a 1654 in a similar position to the shell that was found.

my father handed this train down to me around 15yrs ago. he bought from a gentleman at a meet in york pa in 1980. he had five custom painted military trains from different countries. my father has always regretted not buying all of them. i've done alot of internet searching and have never found anything like this one. or any kind of info on the guy that built and painted them. to my knowledge when i took them out of the box for pics is only the 2nd time they have been out in 37yrs. never been put on a track

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.

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