Upgrading an old system
Posted by JohnL70 on Thursday, March 08, 2018 3:41 AM


I have a simple question.  Being new to model trains, I would like to know if you can take a 2005 Pennsylvania Flyer ready to run set with a 4-4-2 locomotive, O scale and a CW-80 transformer and upgrade to a TMCC electronic control system.

Can you be more specific - do you want wireless remote control of this one set or are you expanding with more equipment?

It can be done but the expense would not be worth it. For probaly the same or less $$ you are better off purchasing a new LionChief set with Bluetooth app control.
