We just got a 6-48036 NYC AF Mikado for my Dad's AF layout. We operate in conventional mode only, have a AF 30B transformer, and a K-Line K-952C whistle/bell controller for the inner and outer loops (separately powered). The Mikado has a couple of issues that we could use help with.
1) The backup light only turns on for a brief moment when with each direction change when cycling through the reverse unit. The headlight is always on. Is this locomotive supposed to have directional lighting?
2) Instead of operating the whistle and bell the K-Line whistle/bell controller acts as a direction change button. (It does work properly with our MTH F-3 w/ProtoSound 3.0.) Is there something about the K-Line's whistle/bell controller that makes it non-compatible with Flyonel's RailSounds? (I have used a K-Line controller on my O-gauge trains and it works fine with ERR RailSounds.)
3) When opening up the the tender to install a 9v battery, despite using care, the three wires connected to the volume pot became disconnected. Does anyone have a schematic, or know which color wire attaches to which post?
Thanks for any and all help!
