For O-gauge you have three basic options:

1. Get a decent AC transformer that supplies at least 16 volts to the track, preferably with both a whistle and bell operating button.

2. Get a TMCC or DCS conversion kit (the two systems are not compatible) from either Lionel or MTH, the appropriate control system, and an 18VAC power supply. Major $$$ involved with this.

3. Since it already has a can motor, remove the existing reverse unit and sound module, but keep the speaker. Install a DCC sound decoder rated for G-scale and operate using a DCC system. You'll need a DCC power supply rated 2.5 amps or better.

Any 3 rail AC Transformer designed to run O Gauge trains will do the job.

Hello Gerald,

You are welcome here and don't worry about your english. Perhaps your fingers were a little oily when you removed it from the box. Undecided  I have successfully used cotton swabs dipped in a simple solution of water and just a little mild soap such as dish soap or hand soap Cool.

Enjoy those locomotives.

Loco Bill

I have used the NCE 4 amp units on my Bachmann locomotives when I do not want sound.

For the ones that did not come with DCC and sound and I want sound I use the Soundtraxx TSU4400.

A video of tangential interest , but the main reason I put it in is the multiple great overhead views of water, much like you’d see looking down on a layout .  Notice the variations in color and reflectivity as sun angle and water depth change.

Thanks Jon.  But I am not interested in a Walthers.  My needs can easily be met with the Bachmann if I can over come this problem.
Good luck on your quest!
