Lionel 345 Culvert Unloader
Posted by Train50 on Sunday, February 10, 2019 6:43 PM

I've had this accessory for about 10 years.  I recently removed it from the box and wired it per instructions.  When I position the car, the hazard lights begin blinking, but the light in the house does not come on and the gantry will not operate.  Does anyone have any suggestions for correcting this problem?

Are you sure you are seeking information on a 345 Culvert Unloader? Here is a link to Lionel information pertaining to the unit, courtesy of Olsen's Toy Trains. There is no mention of hazard lights or light in the "house".

Thank you!  I believe the link you gave me is for the post war model.  This is a newer version that can run on Command Control.  I am trying to operate it conventionally.

My link is for the modern conventional(non-command) version.

Thanks again.  I do have those operating instructions.  I was hoping someone could help me troubleshoot the problem.
