SOURCE: I am trying to hook up a Lionel 1033 transformer

I have the original Instructions for Operating the 1033(written in 1953) - the second paragraph of the "How To Connect Transformer" reads as follows: The "Multi -Control" transformers listed in this leaflet have four binding posts located on the top of the transformers. Of these, "A-U" and "B-U" combinations furnish variable voltage for the track. The control arm of the transformer simultaneously regulate the voltage output of both the "A-U" and the "B-U" combinations. The transformer nameplate indicates the voltage ranges of these two combinations.The "A-U" combination supplies any voltage from 5 to 16 volts. The B-U combination has voltage from 0 to 11 volts. In selecting the proper range of voltage for your particular outfit, try the lower "B-U" combination first. If the maximum train speed is not satisfactory, then try the "A-U" posts.

To paraphrase the "How to Connect Accessories" section: accessories work best with fixed voltage - these voltages are obtained from the following pairs of output binding posts: "A-B" 5 volts; "B-C" 11 volts and "A-C" 16 volts.
Hope this helps, Mark

Need wiring diagram for Lionel 313 Bascule Bridge


There are 5 terminals on the bridge number them from outside to inside 1,2,3,4,5
Terminal 1 gets connected to the outside rails on a V,Z,VW,orZW transformer terminal U. The control button a #96 push button gets connected between terminals 2 and 3. Terminal 3 also gets a wire from A or B on a V or Z or Bor C on a VW/ZW. Terminal 4 gets connected to the transformer terminal D. Terminal 5 gets a wire to the lockon on the black bridge frame. The bridge needs 3 sections of track on each end seperated from the rest of the track as a stopping section remove the center rail pin on this section, This forms the stopping sections at each end of the bridge.

The A terminal of the transformer has no power but the accesory side does


Open up the transformer and make sure the terminal has not become disconnected from the power wire. Sometimes from use the terminal becomes unattached inside the casing.

It sounds as though you may have two defective transformers. Lionel has reported problems with some of their smaller transformers. I would have the transformers and the engines checked by a Lionel service station or contact their customer service department for help.
