Add a sticky to the Lionel Lion Chief and other R/C Systems forum?

Just thought it might be worthwhile to add a nice, easy to find and reference, closed sticky thread to the LionChief sub-forum with the information Jon (RAILSOUNDS) posted in anothe thread, listing which engines are and are not compatible with the LionChief Universal Remote at this time.  

The information is from the thread: and posted on 1-4-17 @9:37 Am  by RAILSOUNDS.

Original Post

Could a sticky be added to the LC and other RC system forum for 'Manuals and Reference Materials' (or whatever the proper name was in the other forums) like there is in the MTH DCS and Lionel TMCC/Legacy forums? 

Would be a good place to keep future info like this as well, like in the other forums.

JGL, I also thought of posting this in the place I mentioned here, but it didn't exist. Some good info has been posted in this area in the other (DCS/TMCC/Legacy) forums. Other things can be added by forum members as well. Anyway, sounds like a good idea to me too.

Another thanks to you and Railsounds both! I also really appreciate all the participation by the train manufacturers, nothing better than hearing right from the folks that really know their products and why things are the way they are.
