Belts on Lionel Lumber Loader 364 and Coal Loader 397

Michael Pags ·
I have been reviving several vintage Lionel operating accessories before I move from a temporary to permanent layout and have some questions on belts: For the 364 Lumber Loader, I purchased a new belt several years ago (at least 5) from a reputable parts dealer at the TCA meet in York, but did not install it until a few weeks ago. Kept the replacement belt stored in a zip lock bag. After I installed it, the logs just slipped and could not make it up the slope. I had to put small swatches of...

Coal

Dan Padova ·
I need coal for my operating coaling accessories. 97 elevator, 397 loader, 497 loader and MTH American Flyer coal elevator. Can't seem to find any at the various suppliers. In the distant past i tried aquarium gravel with some success, but I think the artificial coal will work better.

Lionel Smoke fluid Loader/Use

Lionel2341 ·
Hi Guys, As the original designer of the Smoke Loader I would be interested in how your using it. Hint: best way to get the loader up and running the first time. Program the unit, then put Run/Program switch in program mode hold down the brake key to prime the pump, this will get you up and running fast. don't forget to put something under the spout as it will stream fluid. It's always best to start this way for a given Train running session. Ernie

Loader 5.0 Error

When I try to access the TIU I get an error that it can't find the TIU on COM3 so I tried letting it auto find it and the same thing.  I tried 3 different TIUs and two different Laptops (all running Windows 10 if that makes a difference). I'm pretty sure this is the same USB RGB cable that I've used in the past  none of my TIUs are USB).  Any ideas?

Using the DCS Loader Program on a Mac

Barry Broskowitz ·
A month or so ago, I replaced my 4 year old iMac with a current model iMac. My previous iMac went to my wife to replace her 7 year old iMac. This made the 7 year old iMac surplus. After setting up my new machine for myself and my previous machine for my wife, I considered what I wanted too do with the oldest of the 3 iMacs. Although it was incapable of (legitimately) running the latest Mac OS X, Sierra, it was working well with the previous Mac OS X operating system, El Capitan. I decided to...

Operate Lionel's Smoke Fluid Loader through DCS Remote....

Hello Everyone; Has anyone been operating Lionel's Smoke Fluid Loader using MTH's DCS Remote? I finally set mine up on the layout, set it up as an Engine and assigned it ID# 90. I tried pushing several rocker switches and using the thumb wheel, but nothing happens. The loading arm does not move and no noise comes from the pump. The light pole light is lit so I know its getting power. And Run/Prog switch is in the Run position. Hope someone can shed some light.....

Coal for 397 Loader

At present, I have no Lionel original post-war coal to use in my grandson's 397 loader. We tried the Lionel coal tipple coal that I happened to have on hand but it doesn't want to play nice and move up the ramp. I even tried cutting the rounded pieces in half, but they still don't work. I saw some modern era Lionel coal on Evilbay, but if I recall it's cut up pieces of tubular plastic which I don't think will work either.
