I have two recently purchased Lionel Illuminated Station Platforms, 78-2917-250, 6/17. Thanks to help and support from this forum I now have them connected with auxiliary power from my ZW transformer, not track power.
The owner’s manual says to use 12 – 14 volts of power. When I set the ZW control to an indicated 12 – 14 the lighting is not very bright. By comparison, my Lionel postwar No.-15G station platform with new incandescent bulbs being fed a constant 11 volts is much brighter.
Is this normal?
