Can I Make Railsonds, Crewtalk, and Towercom Function On a Conventional Layout?
So I went out and purchased a Lionel 409 Lehigh Valley engine with all the above electronic functions and smoke. When I run it, the engine sounds and horn work when the unit is in neutral. When I stop and shift it to forward/reverse and move it I lose all electronic function--no sounds at all. Crewtalk and towercom never have worked yet. My question is must I run this engine with a TMCC set up to experience all the electronic sounds/functions all the time like it was designed or is there another trick or hoop I must jump through? I am really impressed with how smooth and quiet this engine runs compared to all of my PW units which growl. Thanks for any input on your experiences with this problem.
