I have the Lionel Grand Central Express set, and have been searching high and low for a Lionel, NYC, FT, Dummy, but with no success.
Well, last night a Locomotive from this very set showed up on eBay, in the box, for a very good price, and I bought it.
These are conventional locos, and I plan to run them as an AA unit.
A gentleman over in the Want To Buy forum stated that, all that is necessary to do this, is to switch the two wires that power the motors, on the rear locomotive, so that it starts up in "neutral/reverse" rather than "neutral/forward.
That seems very straight forward to me, but are there any other concerns with doing this mod, and running this way?
