The MTH instructions say the signal man operation on this caboose (no. 20-91636) can be triggered by holding down the bell button on your transformer or on your DCS remote for 1-2 seconds. I'm trying to run it with a LionChief Plus engine. The bell button on the LC+ remote doesn't activate the signal man. I also tried it with a conventional transformer, but it doesn't have a separate bell button, only a whistle button. Pressing that doesn't do anything, either. I don't have a DCS system.
Does anyone know any magic method to activate the signal man in this case? Or will it be necessary to get another transformer with a separate whistle button? Thanks.
