i got my new Legacy Atlantic Great Northern and tried to run it in Conventional. I only run Conventional, no command mode.
It would not move out of neutral unless I turned off the smoke unit. Then it ran fine.
Took it back to my dealer where they tried mightily to get it to run but no dice.
They had two other E6s in stock so they tried them, too. Neither would run in Conventional with the smoke unit on.
They called Lionel HQ and talked to a service tech, then trying some suggestions but to no avail.
So, back it goes to NC for (hopefully) repair.
Anyway, be aware. I imagine I am one of the very few to run Legacy in Conventional, but so it goes. The loco ran fine in Command, btw.
No more Legacy for me; I’ll stick with LC+ from now on.
