Question about Lionel New Haven Freight Train Set
I am presently running two seperate tracks or layouts. The one is a complete Legacy cab 2 remote system with a Legacy diesel engine, it runs great. the other layout has a conventional steam Polar Express engine with a proto sound coal tender. I am presently trying to run the conventional Polar Express train with the Legacy cab 2 remote system.
Nobody, even the dealer cannot tell me exactly what I need to make the conventional system work with my Legacy remote system. so far I have invested in a Powerhouse 180 watt transformer #6-23983 and a new Powermaster Bridge #996 #6-24279 and the way it looks, I will need a #6-24130 TMCC Powermaster variable track voltage unit.
I saw some instruction about using the three ended communications cable that came with my cab 2 Legacy system to be connected between the cab 2 base unit, the Poermaster Bridge unit and the TMCC powermaster. I see no connection point to connect the communications cable to the Tmcc Powermaster unit? You would think Lionel would make it a little easier to run a conventional train with a new Legacy cab 2 remote system. What else would I need & how do I connect it??
Signed: Confused & wiring nightmare!
