Customer Question: Running LEGACY-equipped engines with a Conventional Transformer

Q: What features are lost if a LEGACY engine, like the LionMaster Pennsylvania T1, is run on a conventional 80-watt transformer?

A: Since you will be limited to the basic buttons on a conventional transformer, you will lose most of the user-controllable sound, light, and running features that can be accessed from a LEGACY CAB-2 controller. With that said, the sound quality will still be wonderfully realistic and the operation of the engine will be fine and smooth.
