ebay deal - supposed to be in proper working order - not looking to return it. Has the battery /capacitor upgrade already done. double clang and startup, sounds, etc all working properly. headlight comes on and engine revs, if the other powered A unit is also on the track it'll spin it's wheels trying to push the primary down the track...primary is locked...but not computer locked out.. I can go to neutral and cycle to reverse and the engine will run all night long around the tree backwards. the switch resister must be blown for forward gear engagement? I have done the 18 clang/clink reset and I'm on a Z1000 that runs my FA PS2 diesel set just fine.
so I'll enjoy the train through the holiday and then look to get parts of service on it if someone can provide here please. I've done all my own Lionel pre and post war repairs.. I just don't have much equipment to repair circuit boards, but i'm fine soldering some replacement components..just need the parts. But would also enjoy making new friends with a shop in my area...Rock Hill SC (just across the stateline from Charlotte NC. thanks
