Cab 1L Advanced Features

F3 Woody ·
I currently have a DCS Wi-Fi system operating my layout with the old Cab 1 and Cab 1 base wired to one of my TIUs. I do not like the Cab 2 Legacy and do not want to add it to my layout and since the Quilling Whistle is all that I am really after I have ordered a Cab 1L and Cab 1L base to replace the Cab 1 setup. My question is how does the Quilling Whistle work on the Cab 1L remote. Do you just push the Whistle/Horn button and leave it pushed longer or what? Also I was wondering if you can...

John: I did download the manual several days ago and I read exactly what you posted. Without having the Cab 1L in hand as it is still in transit, I was wondering how you get the Three (if available) different tones of Whistle/Horn. The manual does not make that clear, it tells you how to set up your Legacy engine for Quilling on the Cab 1L remote but does not actually explain how you get the extra tones in the Whistle/Horn. Sorry if this is self explanatory once I actually have the Cab 1L in...

Hi Woody, Once you have set the Horn to Quilling as described int he manual, you get the different intensity blows simply by pressing harder on the horn button. To your second question, the extended startup sequence can't be triggered by the CAB1L.

Hi Woody, It sounds like you have a Legacy engine, but unable to access all of its Legacy features because you have the Cab-1L/Base-1L. With my Windows software and the purchase of either a SER2 or LCS WiFi module and LCS power suply from Lionel, you would be able to access all Legacy features of your Legacy engines without having the Legacy Control System. Please click on the links in my signature below for more information. Please let me know if you have any questions.

No offense, but did you even look at the User's Manual? It's freely available for download and answers your questions.

Rudy: This was the information that I was looking for. I understood the sliding Whistle/Horn control on the Cab 2 remote and the Lanyard pull down on a tablet running the DCS Wi-Fi, but without actually having used a Cab 1L, I was not sure how a single button would allow you to adjust the Quilling of the Whistle/Horn. Thank you for answering both of my questions and if you have any personal knowledge of any tweaks or additional features of the Cab 1L that did not get printed in the manual I...

Swap track one and two on your z4k to see if the condition continues on the other handle. If the problem swaps to the other handle then there is a problem with your track, if not the problem lies with your transformer. If the problem lies with your z4k, it will need to opened for some service.

Are you running conventional or DCS? If DCS, check for a blown fuse in your TIU.

Did you check the circuit breaker on the Z4000?

I managed to get lucky and solve the problem. The transformer was hung up on something. I hit the buttons on the transformer and it ended up working again. Very weird but at least we’re up and running again! Thanks to everyone for their help.

MTH Z4000 Power Issue

TrainMasterMark ·
I was starting to run some trains while I was taking care of a few things downstairs. I had a small derailment with one of my engines on start up running on my track two loop. It did not trigger a power overload on the Z4000. However, I no longer able to get voltage to the track when I give it power as normal on my Z4000 power handle for track two. My track one functions and works fine as normal but my other track is basically dead in the water. Has anyone run into this problem before and...
