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!

Both TPC 300 and 400 had thermal resets. 15 amp/300 and 20 amp/400. Push to reset.

You may need to add the 6-24279 #996 PowerMaster Bridge. I needed it so I could use the original ASC3000. Good luck.

Lionel TPC 300 not working

Sid's Trains ·
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?

I am using a Right of way transformer to power it and it's connected to the command base with the db9 with the red and green wires on the end.

What are you using for basic 18VAC power? How is the TPC connected to the command base?

Re: Lionel TPC 300 not working

I tried that, still no response. My issue is that I can't program it so I can then know the ID number to then reset it. It's like it's not getting the command signal.

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

How to set TR number of TPC 300 without a CAB remote

Roger Williams ·
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.

I bought it on ebay as NOS. I will give the ENG 1 thing a shot. Thanks

Mellow Hudson Mike ·
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...

Wouldn't the set train address or Set TMCC Address command have to be broadcast type commands? Interested in how this turns out. Brendan

Re: How to set TR number of TPC 300 without a CAB remote

Roger Williams ·
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
