I am looking for two Radioactive Waste Containers with "Radioactive Waste 'DANGER'" printed on the sides (used with 462, 6805, 9234 and 9389). Postwar/MPC/LTI/Modern are all fine, but not looking for the blank version sometimes used as gondola loads or the black ones from 16666. I have the red lenses. Intact "handles", please.
Among the “junk” I have acquired are many train cars with disreputable looking black metal frames. More paint has been lost in the rust removal process. These cars are not collector items. Their appearance would benefit from a coat of black paint. QUESTION: Which brand and type of paint have you found works best ? Thanks for your comments.
Hi everyone, trainfam here for Christmas I received a Lionel mfg era 38 engine painted in black, with red window trim and red trim on the base of the shell. Here’s a photo: The reason I’m posting is because I’m going to search for the cars to make it a set again. Again it’s a mfg era 38, my guess is it was made from 1916 to 1917 I am not sure if it came with freight or passenger cars ether, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks, trainfam
Correct, it was just the external connector from the power supply. Power is from a Lionel 180 W (not sure) brick. Connected with a so-so quality adapter I got on eBay with banana plugs going to the TIU. Plastic melted on the banana plug.
So it is possible that in this particular situation there could have been an issue with the way the wire was fastened in the banana plug. One must be careful about crimping solderless slip on or ring terminals or attaching banana plugs to wires. In any event, I agree that checking internal contacts is advisable.
I understand that, but others have replaced melted units, so just additional information. Current flow high enough to melt the plastic on the terminal usually can burn off insulation on the various inductors. That can kill DCS signal. G
As I understand it Kris, it wasn't an incorrect installation, but that over time, as the outside terminal knobs get turned, there are nuts inside that loosen The fix was to install a 2nd nut to lock the first in place.
You are on the right track-check the internal connections at the offending binding post or all of them. An excerpt from this thread : "Every TIU I have opened up has had at least one nut on the binding post not tight enough. To fix this you need to get some M4-.70 nuts. Unscrew the nut on the binding post and remove the external washer and wire. Replace the nut and tighten. Then replace the wire. Next the external washer. Then the nut."
What is important to remember is that the melting resulted from current flows that were within acceptable limits, so a circuit breaker or fuse would not have provided protection. This is a matter that requires manual inspection, including fingertips to detect heat. My initial issue Rev Gs do not have nuts. This was a later improvement
That thread excerpt nailed it Carl. When I opened the case I expected the nut on the inside to be barely tight. But it felt tight enough when I checked by hand. Then I took a small wrench to tighten it. Wow, there were more than a few turns needed to get it tight to the level I thought it should be. I checked the other nuts for the other terminals. Same thing. Basically they were all loose to some extent. Now I have 18 volts and the terminal is cool to the touch during operation. Without...
Scott, Glad to hear you found the issue. I would follow the suggestion of the poster in that thread and double nut it with additional washer after the holidays. That will prevent the nuts from working loose again. That creates a binding post that isolates the post mounting from the wire connection. It can be a safety issue as you can see from the club members post.
I'm glad someone benefited from my post. I didn't think anyone would even look at it with all the other posts in the thread talking about fuses and breakers after that TIU post melt down. By the way, the part number for the replacement of the dual female binding post is BB5100004 and was $4.00 in 2/19/14 if you want to replace it.
I do and I have the add on car that Lionel make. They essentially put a nose on a budd car and added the jet engines on top. The first batch did not have a working bell or whistle and was a Lionel error that they made right. Cool engine.
Charlie, Marx made a Bud too So did vintage AMT / Auburn I think. I thought a Marx shell was up for sale here, but couldn't find it..Sold? Maybe Ebay? (I wonder if there is a plastic airplane model with jets that size &/or type too) I always found that engine and the fact it was tried out, very interesting. ...fun too. I can't wait to see what you end up with
Thanks for the replies. Rusty thanks for the link, that is a great description of the real engine and testing. I have been messing with model trains and reading about real ones for nearly 40 years and one can still learn something new. It keeps the interest up. Charlie

Browsing Youtube tonight, I came across Trailers From Hell, hosted by Joe Dante. This film, The Black Scorpion, is a typical 1950's sic-fi movie, featuring the tried and true scenes played out in so many films of that era. Of course, a train gets attacked by the giant scorpion. However, the film makers didn't try to hide the fact that a model train was used in the scene. Take a look at the film and in particular the scene starting at 1:21. https://youtu.be/DkCUeSABNHY
Altho I have seen and own a crackle black 257T, an orphan 259T crackle black tender showed up at a recent local train meet. Does anybody else have one? What loco came with it? cars? Outfit number? The normal 259T came with either a 257, 258 or 259 locomotive. Ron M
I am looking for one Black Lionel Slag Car. I am from SW PA. and about 65 years ago as children, my brother and I visited a relatives home near a mill as night was approaching. A long line of moving cars came out of the mill, so we tried to see how many cars we could count before the orange glow vanished. After dark we counted for probably an hour to see if we could get above our record high of 18 cars. Long story short, his health is not good and we recently talked about this experience. I...
Since there is not a Greenberg's Lionel Guide for after 1995 I have been reviewing Lionel Catalogs I have after that date. I have to give modern Lionel credit for making several interesting and different cars and engines. I am finding the Lionel Catalogs pictures very good and the descriptions much more complete than the Greenberg's Lionel Guides. I found a Lionel M-497 Jet powered Rail Car in the 2010 Vol. 1, Signature Edition pg. 82. The original M-497 experimental jet powered rail car was...
Greetings, I seem to have developed a problem with viewing the posts to the OGR Hi Rail forum. For several weeks all was well, then about a week ago, I see a black screen covering the posts after about 1/3 of the way through viewing the daily digest. I can tell there are posts behind the blackened area, but have no idea how to view the posts unless I go to the topical list. Any suggestions? Thanks, Michael Pags
https://www.facebook.com/stewa...=7427311139038593357 I hope it works this is the same day we brought the Train Set home I suppose it's how little boys all over the world first played with there Train set at Christmas or Birthdays some of us still do as you can see I hope
For about a week I noticed that my 18 volt magic bulb was dimming on my layout. The other day I checked the track voltage and it was about 15.9 or so which seems low. So I checked the connectors from the power supply brick into the TIU and found that the plastic had melted on the Fixed Voltage IN 1 black terminal banana plug. I figured it was a loose connection and fixed it but no improvement in voltage and the terminal gets very hot to the touch. Trains are on the track but not operating. I...
Hello Tin-Plate World . Diamonds may be a girls best friend.....but for my money "Black Diamonds" are where it's at. Arthur H Hudson took over design and supervision at Ives in 1925 and produced some of the most beautifully proportioned , elegant, handsome, stunning tinplate trains ever to grace the rails . Arthur designed the 1122 & cars plus it's standard gauge big brother ( 1134) ...and prototype set of cars 22" in length!.. Unfortunately after the 1134 hit the market in early 1928...
I am replacing all the batteries in my MTH locos with BCR replacements. I opened my RK-1113L PS1 Dryfuss Hudson (purchased second hand) but there is no 9V battery that I can see (or any battery at all). There are two boards stacked in the tender and one has an almost battery sized black box but it soldered to the board and does not look like a battery. The black box has a sticker on it that says QSI Patent No.'S 4,914, 431,5, 184, 078 & Patents pending. Anyone know where my battery is? I...
