In Eric Siegel’s review of the new Lionel Legacy GP9 diesel (page 31) the author states that for the new diesel:
“also on the roof is a hidden, removable panel located in front of the cab. Removing this panel reveals the run/program switch, a master volume knob, master control switches for the smoke and sound, and a space for an optional 9-volt battery.”
I have the Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo version of this new “Torpedo” GP9, and it does NOT conform to the author’s description for placement of these controls.
My unit does have a pull off roof panel in front of the cab, but the opening reveals only wires and computer chips.
There is a second pull-off roof panel at the other end of the diesel (long hood end) and it reveals a sound volume control screw but nothing else.
On my sample, the Run/Program and Smoke-No Smoke switches are under the front truck on the underside of the unit. I have been unable to find ANY on-off switch for Sound at all.
i was wondering if any of you have one of these new Geeps and where the control apparatus is on yours? I am confused.
BTW, running in Conventional, my unit only runs in one direction, an obvious problem.
