I'm looking to purchase one of the Lionel Vision Line Norfolk Southern Genset #300 diesel switchers, in new or like new condiiton. Specs and photo can be seen here: http://www.lionel.com/products/norfolk-southern-legacy-genset-switcher-300-6-28323/ I have other engines to trade for it or will pay cash if price is right. Please email directly: email@example.com Thanks for looking.
The TPC 300 (6-14189) is barely used, and in excellent working condition. It comes with a 6-14191 6' Command Base Cable (6-14191) and a TMCC TPC Cable Set (6-14194). Price $80 plus $15 USPS shipping = $95 total. Shipping to USA only.
SOLD: Lionel Legacy Norfolk and Western SD40-2: http://www.lionel.com/products...diesel-6121-6-34776/ and Lionel Legacy Great Northern GP-7: http://www.lionel.com/products...-diesel-626-6-28563/ Both are in good shape, fully functional, the SD40-2's trucks make a slight ticking noise as it runs, likely the result of normal wear on the engine. The cosmetics are basically flawless on the SD40-2 and the GP-7 is flawless except for the missing front hinged deck plate which is present on the...
Hello, yes I'm looking for a HO DC or DCC Bachmann Spectrum Susquehanna 142. If anyone has one that's DC my maximum price would be 90 with no broken parts/peices of the loco. For DCC (and if you have it DCC with sound) my maximum is around 300. Please get back to me soon, and have a good day!
I just bought a Lionel TPC 6-14189 and the command base cable to add to my layout. I hooked it all up as the instructions and the Lionel Service department video says to. The only thing is that it just won't program and work. I apply power and the communication led blinks once and that's it. When I put it into program mode the light doesn't blink when I press the set button. No program and no power. What is the issue here?
If you have connected the way Fred shows above it should work,solid comm light and flashing track light. The only other thing I can think of would be to switch the dat-com wires and see if it changes anything. I just fooled around with mine and if I unplugged the db-9 the comm light went dark but the track light continued to blink,plug the db-9 back and the comm light came on steady. If you have a different transformer I would try that also. Doug
I am looking to 'automate' my Christmas Post War trains this year. I plan on using a TPC 300, 135w powerhouse and an Arduino/Raspberry Pi as the controller. I think I have it figured out sending commands, except for how to set the TR number of the TPC unit for the first time. I know I set the switch to program and send it 'something' over the serial line. All the TMCC commands use the TR address as the second byte, but since none has been set, not sure how to address the TPC unit to set it.
Generally I've had more luck using ENG instead of TR with TPC 300's and 400's but my understanding is that they can be programmed as either. I have my TPC 300 programmed to ENG 13, but I believe it came from the factory set to ENG 1, just like locomotives do when they come from the factory. (Somebody might correct me if I'm wrong on this). Is yours new or NOS, or did you buy it used? If its new or NOS I suggest that you assume it's already set to ENG 1, and try that over the serial...
Update... I took Mellow's advice and assumed the TPC unit was ENG 1 and tried to run a few commands.... I got nada. Before my frustration forced me to reach out to you the experts, I threw all sorts of garbage at it on PRG mode. So I went back to PRG mode and set it to, or what I thought was, ENG 1. I got a long blink from the unit signaling that it was set. Went back to RUN mode and ran the set momentum low which should signal the unit to switch to command mode. The track light started...
Excellent! Your request took me back in time. At one point I was considering undertaking the same kind of thing. Time flies, and I set it aside. That was about 15 years ago. I was using a laptop though. The Arduino would make it a nice tiny package. Keep us up to date on how it turns out. Mike
