GGD PRR Congressional Set

Recently got the set, and it is absolutely gorgeous! The cars come individually wrapped - it took about an hour, I think, to unpack each one individually. Thought there might have been a problem with my observation car, but had forgotten to look for...

Thought there might have been a problem with my observation car, but had forgotten to look for switches on the bottom - been a while since I used a new set. I'm attaching a video of the train made with the iPhone headed by an MTH motor, and will see if I can get a better video (a bit out of focus) or some...

Looks beautiful! Mine are still in the boxes. I guess I need to carve out 12 hours to get them unpacked.

Diaphragms for 15" Lionel Aluminum Congressional passenger cars

Mike Wyatt ·
I bought some Lionel Part no. 6 109060010 Diaphragms for my Congressional cars after spending a fair amount of time trying to get something suitable. The part number referenced is for Lionel heavyweight cars. I had to cut off the part that would normally mount to the door frame of the heavyweight car, because they would have been too close for making the turns (O72, O60, and O48) on my layout. I then used 3M 77 contact adhesive to glue them to the aluminum car. I got these from S and W Parts...

O- Gauge, battery powered lighting kits

Mike Wyatt ·
I wanted no-flicker lighting in my Lionel Aluminum Congressional cars. After looking for a way- I happened upon "Dr. Bob's" kits- he sells a variety of kits that are marketed (mostly) for the smaller scales- N, HO, and (some) O. I bought the S/O constant lighting kit. Not being an electronic guru- and since Radio Shack is no longer available to me- buying such a kit was better for me. I was sold fully after I saw what the kits included. In the envelope, each kit includes great instructions,...

Re: O- Gauge, battery powered lighting kits

Mike Wyatt ·
The above linked options are $ 20 - $40 per car, and not in stock. This is a lot of what I found while searching, and why I bought the $4.50 one I bought. I was not ready to invest $100- 200 on lighting a $ 150 (used) set of five cars, each car with no interiors and having silhouettes anyway. Actually the light being a little lower looks more realistic to me- after all, at night on a train most of the light comes from passenger's reading lights, right?? To each his own, I guess. Just thought...

It's not hard to get flicker-free lighting that never needs a battery. In addition, I like a lot more than three LED's to light a whole passenger car. Passenger Car LED Lighting Kit LED Lighting Regulator

K-line by lionel congressional diner 6-21276

joe woods ·
I recently purchased the k-line by lionel 6-21276 congressional diner. I am not sure how to wire it up,The instructions do not suggest the voltage range for the smoke unit or lights.Also the sound circuit has a factory pre made plug but nonthing to wire it to.In addition it cautions against wiring it to the transformer.So what is the proper voltage to the sound system.
