New GG1 power requirement
Posted by Greg K on Friday, December 6, 2013 7:45 AM

Hi folks quick question here..I have a 2010 Lionel GG1 set  and I tried running it with a new cw 80 watt transformer. The train itself barely moves and the green light blinks. I swapped with another cw 80 watt transformer and same thing. I then swapped the wires to an old ZW and it ran fine. The 80's both ran other engines fine. Is the gg1 too much for 80? It's wired properly on the track power not accessory and there are 2 sets of power wires evenly spaced for whole track. Any reccomendations?
