One of the awesome sights seen in live railroading is a long train with multiple engines at the head of the train. In the modern era with todays computerized diesel and electric engines the commands are fairly straight forward and connecting the engines allows for one operator to command multiple engines. In the Steam Era lash ups were also possible but each engine required its own engineer and communications was critical to successful operation.
Using Lionel Legacy, art imitates life and we can lash up many engines. Whether you’re pulling a simple consist of 5-10 cars or you have a layout that will allow you to assemble a 40-50 car train, the Legacy Operating system will facilitate this.
Using the Train “TR” function on the Legacy unit, both engines can be controlled with a single command to operate both engines as one.
