I am setting up my DCS for the first time (Rookie).
I have a Lionel Trainmaster KW Transformer with (In-line Fuse) feeding (Red wire
on the B terminal and Black wire on the U terminal) into my TIU (Fixed 1 Input)
(Red on Red, Black on Black), then from Fixed 1 Output into my Atlas O Terminal
Track (Red on A, Black on U). I am using 14g wiring for all of this. When I turn the Transformer on, the Engine ( MTH
EMD SD40-2 Diesel) lights up and starts making "Train Sounds". However, I can
not get the hand held remote to recognize that there is a train on the tracks. I
am able to get the train to run manually, by using the direction indicator on
the Lionel transformer, but nothing with the Remote. I have tried seperating a
small portion of track from the rest of the run, I have tried facing the train
both directions. I belive the battery is charged because the train makes it's
shuting down sounds after i remove power from the track.
Please tell me
what to do. This is very dissappointing. I was very much looking forward to
getting this system running with now problems, but it has been a head ach thus
