I use these pins used in .1" pitch headers along with their female counterparts. Crimp them on and cover with shrink tubing. Fairly unobtrusive. There are many similar options.

Not only are the small engines affected. Both the Lionel NYC Mohawks and Niagaras (TMCC and Vison) will stall on some Ross switches unless the pickup rollers are tied together with a wire. I have had...

If this is the Lionel "Docksider" than has no tender it may or may not have the same problem. Most Lionel steam switchers that have a tender likely would not stall as the most of their tenders have...

Nice graphics but I think it would look better as a bobber. The outboard trucks give it a high water look. Like the pickup.

I have used them to restore Lionel Post War engines only because many of the originals were stamped. I wouldn't consider them for other lettering projects. Its very difficult to get consistent...

This engine will be worth the effort. It, along with the D,L,&W version were built by Samhongsa. Besides the bigger motors it has better detail than the PAs Lionel built a few years later. Maybe even...

I have to admit I am not familiar with those very early boards but for sure they are not modular TMCC so you will need a Full blown Cruise Commander and a Railsounds board. QSI sound was designed to...

You will need a Cruise Commander for these and likely a new Railsounds board. This has very early non modular TMCC so a Cruise M won't work. Worthwhile project though. This engine has two giant...

They look great. I don't have any of the houses but have used a lot of the furniture pictured above. Our local hobby shop stocks it.
The square tables and chairs are the same 1/48 furniture.

Gary, on the RCMC engines they use the tach wheel like TAS and MTH. Only the BEMC engines have to use a cam.

I have the two TMCC J3s. Paid roughly 900 for both. A cam change will give four chuffs, not that hard due to the screw on wheels. You would have to add a some circuitry for 4 puffs along with a fan...

Really? I didn't know that. I don't think Lionel's chuff rate can be changed programatically like MTH. If so it has to go back to Lionel for RCMC reprogramming.

I would say most all of the rolling stock is what you might find under someones table for 5 bucks each. If the 2065 runs OK and the whistle in the tender works it might be worth as much as 65 bucks....
