Benefits of Lionel TrainMaster Command Control (TMCC)
Benefits of Lionel TrainMaster Command Control (TMCC): Traditional
model railroad control systems used the power from the transformer
to give directions to the train. The Lionel TMCC system
directs your trains using separate digital signals. The
Lionel RailSounds system offers a wider array of sounds
when used in conjunction with Lionel TMCC.
More Features and Functions:
much broader assortment of operating functions and features
are available. Locomotives can be operated independently,
even on the same track, or in unison as a single lashup.
can even adjust signal reaction time in order to simulate
the momentum of real life train operation.
Improved Lighting and Performance:
TMCC uses constant track power, so lighting remains constant
and older Lionel locomotives run more smoothly at slower
Ease of Use:
commands are simple and can be executed quickly. There is
no complicated clinking and clanking required
as with alternative control systems.
Ease of Installation:
TMCC Command Base will service an entire layout, no matter
how many power blocks you have.
TMCC provides digital control at a fraction of the cost
of alternative designs.
TMCC broadcasts the digital signal to an electronic receiver.
Alternative digital systems pass the signal through the
roller-pickup, which is subject to dirt and poor contact.
Freedom of Movement:
TMCC is the only O gauge control system that offers a walk-around
remote control that transmits signals to a single Command
Base. See your layout from new angles. Take your controls
with you when you have to fix a problem on the far side
of the layout and avoid having to walk back and forth. And
watch how much more time your kids and grandkids will want
to spend in the trainroom with you.

CAB-1 (6-12868) allows you to walk around your layout
while controlling all of your Command Controlled locomotives
and accessories. Also included is the TrainMaster Command

TMCC can be used in conjunction with any transformer
capable of 18 volts continuous AC output!
Only One ZW!
only one ZW! No single product has come to symbolize
the legend of Lionel more than the Lionel ZW.
Molded to original dimensions in classic phenolic
resin, the ZW can run up to four trains at the
same time on different layouts, plus accessories.
The two Engineer-type handles provide independent
control of two variable voltage circuits, each
with built-in whistle, direction, and bell/horn
controls. Two additional accessory voltage circuits
can be set by means of dial type controls to any
desired voltage. Or if you prefer, you can control
all four outputs with a single handle!
to current UL® standards, the ZW controller
can be powered by any combination of one to four
135 watt or 180 watt Lionel PowerHouse power supplies.
And if you use the Lionel Command Control system,
you can adjust each output using your walk-around
remote control up to the level pre-set by its
corresponding ZW handle. (Its a great way
to help less-experienced railroaders keep your
trains under control while enjoying the thrill
of independent remote-controlled operation.)
with two 180 watt PowerHouse power supplies, this
ZW package provides the power and control you
dream of for your vintage or state-of-the-art
Lionel locomotives and accessories.
