Thanks Bob! The Rio Grande does look good. When you say Issues with the UP are you talking the ID issue or ?

Yes, it just forgets the id on the lead A unit a few times.  Otherwise perfect in decoration, sounds, operation, etc...  i will just run it with id #1, its no problem then.

It takes me 8 seconds to reprogram the number, so its not a big deal to me...

Just wondering if anyone has called Lionel and received an RA number.  If so, is Lionel providing a return shipping label?

I just got off the phone with Katie at Lionel.  She is sending me an email with labels to return 2 sets.

Great news!  Glad Lionel has stepped up and provided shipping labels.

thinking about getting one of these sets. Am I correct in assuming that if you make no changes to the factory default setting of 1, it will not be a problem in calling them up in legacy multiple times without the engine s forgetting this id? 

Thanks 

Correct.  My set runs fine as engine 1. No issues after 3 months of running.

If you’re getting it from a dealer why not have them get it updated first by Lionel. 

I have to get around to sending in two sets.  Honestly been waiting for my other 4csets to go bad.  Still working fine.  My rio grande has not forgotten its id.  Still works as train#6.  

I have encountered the issue on my UP, and SF only.  Lead A unit (the one with sounds) defaults back to engine 1 after power is cycled.

I called today as I just received my SP last week which is having same issue.  Even the b unit this time.  While on the call I asked about my NYC AA I sent in about a month ago.  Still in line waiting for repair.  Got the RA but probably not ship it right away  

I asked if they are recalling those that have yet to be delivered as I have not received the UP and stated I really don’t want the set if all I have to do is return it right away.  They are not, so calling dealer to discuss canceling   Not sure but it’s Not like there isn’t choices when it comes to UP

But all in all been running the SP ABA and horn and color scheme is Outstanding    Catalog pics do not do it justice   

 

I sent mine is when service reopened to correct the loosing ID problem.  Got them back quickly but then they had the "no response to creating an ID at all" problem - other than #1 and 99.  That was not acceptable, so back in they went.  Still there.  Looks like others are having the same second problem.

I'm surprised they flipped them without fixing them for you.  It was a pretty hot conversation when they were released.  I spoke with Aaron and Katy pretty quickly upon receiving them.  They were certainly aware of the problem.  Looks like you go under their radar.

Bryant, the only thing I can guess is that they tested them on loco #99 which, as was explained to me, is the universal number for Legacy locomotives.  And of course #1 and 99 work fine!  She actually sent me an attempted fix through my CAB 2 to use when setting the loco ID, but it didn't work.  Thus, I got my second RA.

Still waiting on our first...
