Just got my new legacy 4-6-2 pacific.  UP greyhound, engine has the two color class lights, wow this is a big brute  works on my ross O-42 curves nicely though.  Have to watch what cars to pull, it will work nicely on my O-54 loop.  The instruction book on page 15 mentions "EFX trim and EFX Bar graph,  but I dont see those buttons on the cab II,  any help there please?  IMG_0747IMG_0746IMG_0745IMG_0744IMG_0743IMG_0742

Lovely, but I have a question: there are no ropes from the bell and whistle to the cab.  The prototype would have had them visible, wouldn’t it?  Or were they hidden inside somehow.  

I ask because  I I’ve noticed Lionel includes that detail on some locos —eg, Santa Fe 4-8-4s, 2-8-8-2s — but not others — VL 2-10-10-2.

The BEST part of these new oil-fired Pacifics is that they forgot to remove the variable ashpan glow, and they all have it! While not prototypical of an oil burner, it looks a lot better than nothing! I still think they should create a white/yellow flickering/flashing led for under the cab for oil fired engines. Wouldn't be hard to do. But I'll take the red glow on this one for now.

If your looking for labored sounds. You can also slide the train brake down a bit, below half.  If you look on the screen the brake "level" will be indicated.

If you throttle past the brake level, the labor will increase but the train speed will not. Pegging the throttle all the way yields a very dramatic chuff. Throttling down below the brake level will lessen the labor.

Sliding the train brake down further will also limit the trains speed even slower.

For this reason, I prefer to call the "train brake" more of a "train load " slider because it makes the train mimic pulling a heavy load.
