My Visionline Niagara L84960 does not perform properly: the water-scoop spray effect stop working month ago , the speaker in the smokebox and the bell work when "they fill like it" (erratic operation) even pushing the warning control up in order to trigger the bell nothing happen (no sound), I call Lionel three times and today they told me that I have to wait until the first week of August to get a RA in the meant time I can not enjoy my $1,600.00 Visionline Niagara

I think it'll be raining Alco PA's at Lionel when they get around to accepting warranty repairs, so I suspect things are going to back up for a spell.

John, stopped in the store yesterday and they have another diesel model that is forgetting it's ID as well. I'd guess anything built with that batch of boards will need to go back.

There’s quite a few things that you can do before shipping it back to Lionel. As for the tender  scoop smoke , first thing I would do is re  program the engine , next make sure the scoop switch on/ off switch is in the on position   Now if that doesn’t work maybe you don’t have enough smoke fluid in the units in the tender, remember the fluid has to travel a long way to get to the Units. I would also blow into the smoke fill hole very hard. Quick note scoop smoke only operates while engine is in motion.

Getting to the sounds , first make sure all volumes on the engine and tender are turned up, next with your legacy remote, press the whistle and then press the number 1 key volume up. Next press Aux 1 and then number 1 key. If all of this doesn’t work then it’s best to ship it back to Lionel. 

Hope this helps ,
