You will need to add a TMCC Command Base and the required TIU/TMCC serial interface. This will allow you to control Lionel engines with the DCS remote. Please see page 100 of the DCS Operators Manual fifth edition.

SOURCE: I have a problem with

Had trouble with 072 switchs. Something is causing half the switch to loose track power. Most of the time it is the wide place on the switch. Had two of mind on both ends of the hot rail hookup do the same thing. What I did was have hot rail hookup in five or six different places. No problem now. Also have problems with derails at switch when going through ir backwards. Lional should in stall a small spring at the switch point to help hold it against the rail. No recommended but I took a punch and flatten the rail so it would push more on the switch point. OK so far. Hard to remove switchs when all your Fastrack is screw down.

SOURCE: What is lionel smoke pellet tamper used for? Why needed?

Yes, you do just drop the pellet in...
But if there is any kind of crud built up in the
smoke stack, it may not allow the pellet
to seat on the heating element. Thus the
tamper is included to allow you to push
the pellet all the way down. If you don't
have one, a piece of wooden dowel the right
diameter can be used.

You do not specify which Santa Fe steam engine you have, but I am going to guess it's the Santa Fe RTR O27 set...

Here's a link to the manual for it. Go to page 9, read the last paragraph on the page. It may be the answer to your problem

SOURCE: Lionel battery operated g scale locomotive will not move

Replace all batteries in locomotive & remote.
You do need to be fairly close to the set with the
remote for it to work.

I have a Lionel 7796 New York Central. The remote blinks a constant red and it does not operate the locomotive.I thought it was the remote so Lionel sent me a new remote but the same problem exists.


The locomotive is not receiving the single from the remote . You need to paire them. In the Manuel should be intuitions for pairing. Hope this is some help.

I cannot get my MTH engines to run properly. Power is on, bell and horn sounds, lights are on


MTH locomotives have internal batteries that may need to be replaced. The circuit boards in some older MTH locomotives can be damaged if operated with discharged or faulty batteries. Contact MTH customer service for help with your engines.

Many of the MTH Protosounds 1 and 2 and Trainmaster will not work with the Lionel CW-80 electronic power source. The output waveform is so non-like sinusoidal. The electronic sound systems will not usually respond to this waveform and when they do, the sound will be garbled. Use another power source.

I'm not familiar with the Dash 9-44 CW but it may be that the sound and smoke switches are turned off. You will probably find these under a removable cover on top of the locomotive or under it, usually near the cab. Check your instructions or go to Lionel.com and click on support. Instructions and manuals can be found here.
