Hi S Scale,

I have a quick question.  My son just ordered the Lionel Berkshire.  Being an MTH O gauge guy myself, who uses proto sound, I noticed something different.

When we went to reverse the engine, the sound dropped out as we pressed the direction button to cycle between forward / Neutral / reverse.

Again, this was in conventional mode with a Z-4000 transformer.

Your feedback is appreciated.


What item number? IIRC many (if not all) Lionel TMCC and Legacy engines require a battery to keep the sound system engaged when operating conventionally. Is this LionChief?
