I have a Lionel Crescent Limited engine that has Legacy control. Recently I have noted that when I turn my track power on the engine seems to start up with lights and sounds before I even start it up with my controller. All my other Legacy engines behave appropriately, and do not start up until I address the engine with my controller.
Now despite the fact that it "seems" to start up, when I try to shut it down or move it with my controller, it does not respond. I have pushed the reset button on the controller, but the engine does not respond. Even the horn or the bell does not function.
Now sometimes I can get the engine to start correctly by fiddeling with the transformer handle; when it starts correctly, then I can run the engine and everything works.
It seems that the engine is not adequately receiving the signal when I turn on the track power.
What can be done???
