Runnning Legacy Cab2 system, the Super Bass B-unit in my Santa Fe ABBA consist lost its sound control commands. The "prime mover" revs up to maximum rpm when powered up, no bell or horn. This behavior started suddenly; the unit worked and sounded great since out of its box. I have attempted to re-program the unit, but no luck. Anybody else have this issue...recommendations?

Interesting. I had this same issue with my Powered A unit. I opened it up and reseated the connections and all has been fine since. It's like the RS are seeing track voltage rather than the input from the CAB2. It did seem to respond to movement commands though. I'm keeping a close eye on mine for further incidences.
I had a similar problem with lights flashing on most of my Santa Fe passenger set cars. Given track, wheels and rollers were all clean, it was suggested on this forum to try a conductive lubricant, like Bachmann E-Z Lube, on the rollers which I did. Have not had the problem since.
Hello all you happy people! I have a minor problem with one of my Santa Fe Lionchief Super Chief passenger cars, and its really starting to bother me. I would like some advice on how I can probably fix the issue if it can be fixed. I was lucky to be given the #84719 Santa Fe Super Chief set as a Christmas Present last year. The set was still in the factory carton, C-10 Mint Brand New, I must add. However, as soon as I started running the train, I noticed right off the bat that one passenger...
I am not sure considering I don't have these items but my guess is that those may have different wiring than the ones of today...so maybe thats the reason. Either that, or im thinking too hard on these things again...
Selling my 2-rail Super Chief set. There are 10 cars in the set. Set is unused. Set box A was opened to inspect fit of dome - good. Set B still factory sealed. Extensive photos of the set are available on the Forum. $3,500.00 with free shipping to lower 48. Thanks, Scott.
Looking for Super O parts in decent shape at reasonable prices such as: #31-7 bus bars, #32-10 coupling pins (originals or ones that fit properly), #38 accessory tracks, #61 ground lock ons, #62 power lockson's, 027 or O to Super O adapter sets (all 9 pcs per set), #32 straight tracks Contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
AMT dome and combine are behind the Santa Fe F unit. That suggests that perhaps Lionel didn’t supply the trains at first - they would have given the production crew whatever they asked for in exchange for screen time, and wouldn’t have supplied AMT/KMT passenger cars (even if they got blowed up real good)... 😵
Here is a cut & Paste copy of a post I made on an earlier thread about the Atlas F-units started by Mr Muffin: No doubt about it. Late last year I was able to score 4 Atlas-O GP60's that were still in the original factory sealed shipping cartons. So, basically they are brand new, never been run. Three of these units are powered and easily pull my reefer block of 32 MTH Santa Fe reefers. In total these six motors could pull the bumpers off a dump truck . Not to worry, I can also pull the...
Stick with this: A- Powered (45L) B- Dummy (45A) B- Dummy (45B) A- Powered (45C) That is how they were delivered from EMD and Santa Fe made every effort to keep the together while they were in service. Also with this configuration the two powered units contain the sound and it will be more evenly distributed as the lash-up passes. BTW, I have the full 12-car GGD El Capitan set on order and will probably use the above units for 50% of the time on the El Cap. The other 50% will be Alco PA's...
I am guilty of not reading my copy of Barry's new book before I ordered my DCS WI Fi unit. I made an assumption that some of the marketing materials meant that it had the same capability as my normal remote to run my layout that operates in "super TIU". I now understand more after I went back and read the new book. I still have some questions that I have not found answers to: 1. Is there a matrix chart of what control capabilities are in the three smart device software sets...
This from I Love Lucy but was colorized, correct? Now, is it my imagination but was there also an episode of I Love Lucy in black and white that featured the Lionel Santa Fe F3s? Is the memory I have of a black and white Lucy saying "Here comes the Super Chief" and Santa Fe Fs pulling a passenger train for little Ricky a figment of my imagination?
Hi Jonathan and thanks for the details you've provided. Your suggestion for mixing brands to obtain some non-powered B units seems a good one. But now we'd have to convince Atlas to paint some Santa Fe B's in yellow.. Perhaps you guys could order some undecorated B's from them and paint then to match what you are offering?
Even though Lionel didn't make them, the repro parts guys sell reproduction stripes for the 2500 Santa Fe cars. I added Canadian Pacific stripes to an RPO that didn't have them. You might have to trim some around the baggage doors. If these are not 2500 cars you could always paint and decal the stripes. Pete

Hello, I’m installing a Super Chuffer and I’d like to drive two green LED marker lights off the headlight circuit along with the headlight. The super chuffer instructions say the circuit is rated for one white LED at 3V. I’m curious to know if this circuit could handle the extra load of two 2mm green LEDs wired in parallel with one warm white 3mm led? Would any resistors in series be needed to limit the current? Thank you!
Just a thought as I am not familiar with the Lionel bus, but Lionel uses 1:64 (S-Scale) for many of their tractor trailers (semi trucks) on flat cars. Maybe their bus is S-Scale as well? OTOH, those Scenicruisers were pretty large, it could possibly be the length of 3 cars?
The corgi bus line is 1/50th so you will see some difference in size, more if the real Super Scenic Cruiser is longer than the City Bus. Wikipedia show this model at 29, 35, and 40 feet. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GM_New_Look_bus
Here is a calculator I found on Google to convert inches to S scale 1:64 and back. According to Rusty's dimensions, a 40 foot bus would scale out to be 7.5 inches long in S scale and about 1.78 inches wide. Mike
This is not a scenic cruiser, but it is from about the same era, and is advertised at 1:64 scale, and is advertised at only 3.5 inches long. I ordered one for my layout, a little pricey, but I have always thought these things were outrageous. And I want a Scenic cruiser also, or at least the early 50's vintage GMC bus lettered for Greyhound. Very hard to find in 1:64. Aflyer
That's correct. They are required everytime you make a transition from a straight track to a curve track, either entering or leaving. If you look at a straight track, the groove is narrow and on a straight track the grove is probably 2-3 time wider on a curve section. Therefore the necessity for the transition piece.
To be 100% correct and get the item from Bachmann or another source the track section is two and a half inches long(2.5 inches). It can be used between 2 curves and from curve to straight track. I have used a few two and a half inch straights between my curves when doing an S curve. Lee Fritz
We now have several sets of the "BOWSER MFG" wheels for the Lionel # 33 locos @ $40.00 a set of 4. We have also just listed a fair quantity of AF 'O' valve gear parts on our site. We will NOT be re-tooling to make complete assemblies. Harry
Harry, I'm searching your website with every parameter I can think of and I'm just not seeing these. Would like to order some. Again, do you have a part number or link so that we could find these? thanks
We have just assembled a limited supply of 25 sets of the 1924 1st.version wheels for the Lionel Super Motor that has the larger then normal gear that goes all the way down to the flange. They are priced at $40.00 a set until gone. They will NOT be made again. Sorry folks, we have no dealer discount on this item. Harry
I read somewhere that you should superglue things together on glass since CA doesn't stick to glass. I don't find that to be true I have some wooden buildings to assemble and want to reinforce the insides with stripwood and CA instead of wood glue since i painted both sides to help prevent warping. What can i put under the walls that the CA won't stick to if it bleeds thru? It's a nice thought that I use some kind of applicator that puts a minuscule drop of glue down but I don't. I've tried...
I just received a 1/43 scale Super Scenicruiser bus from France. It took almost a month to get it. I was going to place on my train table with all the other 1/43 scale cars and trucks. I know that 1/43 scale is a little large but I'm fine with that. This bus is 11" long and 2 1/2 wide........... I can put at least 3 cars beside it. Would you say that is 1/43 scale? My lionel city bus is a lot smaller. I think it is 1/48 scale................ Were these...
Coming to our L.E.D. page will be the most used gauge of wire for model trains now days. We will be offering 26AWG SUPER FLEX wire in ten (10) foot rolls. Somewhat higher in price than the Teflon coated 26AWG wire but well worth the difference do to it's flexing capabilities when used for a tether or other applications where flexibility is a must.
