Power & Control / Re: Help with purchasing a transformer
« Last post by Dead head to georgia on August 05, 2022, 07:21:05 pm »
Larry, like the other rail fan needing a transformer, my question is I also have an HO trolley that runs on an out and back track. Figured it would be neat if I could incorperate it into my Christmas tree display. Or will I have to use the "toy" power pack that came with it.

Lionel Maintenance & Repair / Anyway to dim lights on LionChief Plus 2.0 ET44?
« Last post by Multigauge on July 19, 2022, 02:23:44 pm »
I just received a LionChief Plus 2.0 ET44 and the headlight and ditch lights are ridiculously bright. There doesn't appear to be anyway to dim them via the Bluetooth app or the universal controller. Other than painting the bulbs with a flat clear (I don't want to alter their color), any suggestions? I have no electrical skills, but if I were able to find someone capable of adding some resistors to the light circuits, how would they go about doing that? Thank you!

Lorosco, you'll be glad to know that your whistling tender is a collectors' item. Manufactured from 1950-1959, it is a replica of a 1940 tender. A variety of whistle types were installed in them, and some owners report that they work, but they don't work well.

One recently sold for $82 US on eBay. Another one was on sale for $50 US. Unless you paid a fortune for these cars, you did well with this one alone.

Lorosco, that's a nice little engine, manufactured between 1939-1941. Because it is O gauge, it should run on any O gauge track.

I suspect that you bought it "as is," and the seller already knows that it doesn't run--otherwise, he would have said so and charged a higher price.

At the time, Lionel had a well-deserved reputation for manufacturing high-quality products, but eighty years will take its toll. An expert might get it running again by installing new parts. For what it will cost, you might be better off purchasing a similar locomotive.

Power & Control / Lionel #224E Track Power Source
« Last post by lorosco1 on July 11, 2022, 02:43:58 pm »
I recently came into possession of a Lionel 224E locomotive, 2224W whistling tender, and 2 Pullman 2640 passenger cars and 1 Observation passenger car.  I have the controller and the 12 foot metal track but I don't know what power source I need to power the train so that I can see if it runs.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

O Scale / Re: Identification of O gauge rolling stock

Pre-war, latch couplers, trucks. Missing the dump body. Probably a 659. Without body, not much value.

Welcome aboard, Sitofic. I don't think your message got through, though.

Prewar Lionel Trains 1900-1942 / Re: ISO PREWAR 150 FRAME

Welcome aboard, TJET!.

This is a tough one, so we need more information. What specifically are you going to attach it to? Have you contacted Lionel, which does keep supplies of old parts?

We've got some knowledgeable people here who might be able to help if they have additional information.
