Lost Control of Sounds - Lionel 6-85190 Super Bass B-Unit

VegasTrains ·
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.

Help Needed - Flickering Lights on a Super Chief Passenger Car

TheRWBYRailfan ·
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...

Not sure about the number of motors, but the black frame seems to be at least partly due to one of the wrecks and the ensuing fire right under the fuel tank.

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...

MTH DCS WI FI and Super TIU,etc.

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

Super Chuffer Headlight Circuit

NBGT ·
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!

Re: 1/43 scale Greyhound "super scenicruiser" bus size

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

Re: 1/43 scale Greyhound "super scenicruiser" bus size

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

Using the 96" width of a Greyhound divided by the 2.5" of the model I think you'll find the scale to be close to 1:30. John

I just used a scale calculator for the GM Futurliner and based on the size of the real one, 32'10" the 1/64 scale model should be about 6.5 inches. I sure hope it comes in close to that. Aflyer

So these are used into & out of a curve?

Re: Two inch SUPER STREETS

mustang ·
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.

Re: Two inch SUPER STREETS

phillyreading ·
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

I read somewhere that you should superglue things together on glass since CA doesn't stick to glass.

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...
