Lionel train hookup
All electric train layouts require attachment to a power source to make them operational. The uncoupler still works fine, but the accessory rails do not.
Turn off or unplug the train transformer from the power outlet. If your set was made inyou have the earlier of two different locomotives which were both confusingly numbered I am going to use separate power for the lionel train hookup not track power.

If you have switches, you probably shouldn't try to bend the pins as it may damage the switch. Both switches will activate simultaneously either by switch remote. Join 2, other followers.
It appears to be wired with red hotgreen, and black wires at each location for some function that is beyond me. My tubular switches each had original controllers but also had 2 wires from one directly to the other Also, I did notice that my operating track upon removal of the beveled roadbed has 4 sets of three copper terminals which I do not see in the lionel train hookup manual or in your videos.
Two of the binding posts on the transformer are the variable speed output for the locomotive and two others are for the accessories. Exactly how do you figure how many transformers you need for fastrack.
In your sample laout, I see there are several crossover sections to go from one loop to the other. This will give you the most power out of the transformer. So what do you need to wire your layout?
Lionel Fastrack Wiring I have a total of 28 command control fastrack that want to start wiring up to a central location.
Does the pilot truck derail to the inside of curves? I am at wits end trying to figure this out. I am going to wire in the switch lever and also use command control.
