Just wanted top say hi and show off my small train set.

I do have a question about the Baltimore & Ohio Boxcar with Steam Railsounds 6-16639. I picked it up at a flea market last summer for $10. I followed the instructions on hooking up the horn button but I don't think it works correctly. The horn stays on all the time. When I push the button the everything including the train stops. Is this correct?
Thanks for your replies.

Hopefully I have it correct. The Transformer is a #4660
Thanks

The 466o is a DC transformer That is why it sounds all the time . Your engine must run on DC what is the number? It still could be an AC motor.

For a suggestion you can get a CW 80. Plenty on Ebay but you engine is going to need updating to run on AC.

Thanks That makes since now. I do not know the model number of the engine since it is old and the box is gone. Looks like I need to get a new engine and trasformer if I want it to work.
Thanks, it has been a long time since I have played with trains.

All I need is the cab number. Everthing is in books.
All you have to do is to install an electronic e unit.
It appears to be a common mistake. Nothing wrong with running DC. Unless you want to get more engines.
The boxcar sounds like a good deal.
Glad I could clear that up.

There are no numbers on the engine at all. The coal car has the numbers 8706 if that means anything. The only markings on the engine are A.T. & S.F.

The engine is listed in 1991 as 18706.It is difficult to locate information on it but it resembles a Scout 2-4-0 with a two position e unit and an AC/DC wound motor.
Just make sure that it does not have a can style motor with magnets.

Yes. The train came with an oval track and 3 cars plus the coal car. The other 8 cars I got from the earlier mentioned flea market at $10 apiece. I picked up the figure eight and some extra straights at the local hobby shop.
Here is the motor. looks like I got some rust to clean up.

That is a great picture of a DC can motor.
You will need to install an electronic e unit to get on AC track power.
For the price you could find another small engine.
This thread has all the info.

I am surprised that a DC set was sold in 1991.

Well I bought it through a guy I worked with back then who's dad work for Lionel. I bought it and a large scale Disneyland 35th Anniversary train at that time. I don't remember what I paid for the two sets, somewhere around $250. I haven't taken the Disney train out of the box yet.

I think you mean 75th. (Silly Me I thought Lionel not Disney!) The boxcars are worth 20 in like new condition. The time period isn't that collectible but people buy because the prices are reasonable. With an engine number I can track it down the book is too large I didn't find it, only a few boxcars.
