Hi all! I work at a railway museum, and we're having some issues, as the remote for our model train broke! We have another remote on hand, but we can't find the base to go with it. Our original remote & base were the Lionel TMCC Cab-1, but the extra remote we have is the Lionel Cab-1L Legacy. We've searched all over for the base to go with the new remote, but can't find it. Is it possible for us to program our original TMCC Cab-1 Base to work with our Legacy remote?

No. The Cab1L will only work with A Base 1L or Legacy Base. 

Good to know! We figured that was the case, but we just wanted to be sure. Our repair person came in today and said the same thing, so we're looking into ordering a new base (or base/remote set) as soon as we are able.

There is some service and cleaning that can enhance and extend the life of an old Cab1.  The touch pad(s) below the keys tend to gum over or become worn.  Cleaning with a dry cotton cloth to close to original might get a bit more use.   With a little luck you can still find a few Cab1 Command Base sets with minimal use.    IMO,  Mike CT.
