OK try this:

 Let loco set in neutral for 5 seconds, about  full throttle.

 Press whistle for 2-3 seconds.

 Lower voltage to about 1/4 full while holding whistle button down.

 Do not turn throttle off before releasing whistle button.

 Turn throttle off then back on within 5 seconds.

 This should release the speed control.

Chuck, I did a search and did find Lionel instructions that talked about it for early odys that did not have on off switch.  Never heard that before.

 

The reason I was curious I still have a K-Line Cruise Allegheny that doesn't run in conventional except at a crawl.  TMCC is fine, and I have a customers who does that same thing.

 

I tried your procedure but did not work on the K-line.  G
