Lionel CW-80 80-Watt Transformer

{Model|Product|Design} Train Transformer - {6|Six} {Important|Essential|Crucial|Critical} Setup {Tips|Suggestions|Ideas|Guidelines}

The {Model|Product|Design} Train Transformer is the {part|component|portion|aspect} that {makes|can make|tends to make|helps make} the trains go {around|about|close to|all around} the track, but do you know how it {works|functions|operates|performs} and how to set it up {correctly|properly|appropriately|accurately}? {Let|Allow} me see if I can {explain|clarify|describe|reveal} briefly to {help|assist|aid|support} you.

Regardless of your {status|standing}, train {newbie|beginner} or seasoned train collector, setting up the transformer incorrectly will {result|outcome|end result|consequence} in {damaged|broken} trains, trains that {suddenly|all of a sudden|out of the blue|abruptly} {stop|quit|cease|end} {running|operating|working} or even {danger|hazard} to {yourself|your self|oneself|by yourself}.

This is {basically|essentially|fundamentally|generally} how a {model|product|design} train transformer {works|functions|operates|performs}:

{1|one}) The electrical {power|energy|electrical power} {supply|provide} in a {house|home|property|residence} is {normally|usually|typically|generally} 220 volts or 110 volts {depending|relying} on {where|exactly where|in which|wherever} you are and this {level|degree|stage} of {power|energy|electrical power} is {too|also|as well} {high|higher|substantial|large} for the trains, so the incoming {power|energy|electrical power} {needs|requirements|wants|demands} to be {converted|transformed} (or transformed) to a {safe|secure|protected} {level|degree|stage} of 12 to 24 volts. ({Sometimes|Occasionally|At times|Often} 9 volts if {using|utilizing|making use of|employing} {systems|methods|techniques|programs} {such|this kind of|these kinds of|this sort of} as Lego) The {model|product|design} train transformer {takes|requires|will take|can take} the incoming {power|energy|electrical power} and {steps|actions|measures|methods} it down to the {safe|secure|protected} {level|degree|stage} which is {perfectly|completely|correctly|properly} {safe|secure|protected} for the train and the {user|consumer|person}.

{2|two}) The {model|product|design} train transformer {normally|usually|typically|generally} has two cables coming from it. {One|1|A single|One particular} cable is {attached|connected} to {one|1|a single|one particular} rail of the track and the other cable is {attached|connected} to the other track. The {power|energy|electrical power} goes down {one|1|a single|one particular} cable to the track and when the train locomotive is {put|place|set} on the track, the {power|energy|electrical power} passes {through|via|by means of|by way of} the {metal|steel} wheels and on to the motor which turns, rotating the wheels at the {same|exact same|identical|very same} time and {moving|shifting|transferring} the train. The electrical {power|energy|electrical power} then passes {through|via|by means of|by way of} the train {moving|shifting|transferring} {through|via|by means of|by way of} the wheels on the other {side|aspect|facet} of the train to the {second|2nd} rail and then up the {second|2nd} cable {back|back again|again} to the transformer. The train {makes|can make|tends to make|helps make} the electrical connection {between|in between|among|involving} the two rails.

{3|three}) Lionel and Ives do not use a two rail {system|program|method|technique}, but {rather|fairly|relatively|somewhat} they use {3|three} rails. The {current|present|existing|recent} is {passed|handed} to the {center|middle} rail and the connection to the other two rails is {made|produced|created|built} by the train wheels touching the track.

{4|four}) There is {another|an additional|one more|yet another} use for a {model|product|design} train transformer and that is to {power|energy|electrical power} the {accessories|equipment|add-ons} {such|this kind of|these kinds of|this sort of} as lights, signals and crossing gates as {well|nicely|properly|effectively} as other {equipment|gear|devices|tools}. {However|Nevertheless|Nonetheless|Even so}, a {different|various|distinct|diverse} transformer is {used|utilized|employed|utilised} not the {same|exact same|identical|very same} {one|1|a single|one particular} that powers the train, so make a {mental|psychological} {note|be aware} of it as you {design|style|layout|design and style} your set that you do {need|require|want|will need} {more|much more|a lot more|far more} than {one|1|a single|one particular} transformer for {larger|bigger|greater|more substantial} sets.

{5|five}) As your set {begins|starts|commences} to {grow|develop|expand}, you will {need|require|want|will need} to block off {parts|components|elements|areas} of the {model|product|design}. This {allows|permits|enables|makes it possible for} {different|various|distinct|diverse} {areas|locations|places|regions} to have {different|various|distinct|diverse} trains {running|operating|working}, but {each|every|every single|each and every} {area|region|location|place} {needs|requirements|wants|demands} it's {own|personal|very own|individual} transformer and {should|ought to|need to|must} be isolated from {each|every|every single|each and every} other {using|utilizing|making use of|employing} plastic connectors so that the {power|energy|electrical power} does not {short|brief|quick} circuit {each|every|every single|each and every} block. Only {one|1|a single|one particular} train can run at a time on {each|every|every single|each and every} block.

{6|six}) The other {option|choice|alternative|selection} is to use a DCC {power|energy|electrical power} transformer which stands for {Direct|Immediate} Command {Control|Manage|Handle} which is a {computer|pc|personal computer|laptop or computer} {control|manage|handle} {system|program|method|technique} that does not {send|deliver} {power|energy|electrical power} to the trains, but {rather|fairly|relatively|somewhat} sends {power|energy|electrical power} to {each|every|every single|each and every} train individually. {Multiple|Several|Numerous|A number of} trains can be run on the {same|exact same|identical|very same} track. It {costs|expenses|fees|charges} {more|much more|a lot more|far more}, but is {much|significantly|a lot|considerably} {easier|simpler|less difficult|less complicated} to use.

{Electricity|Electrical energy|Electrical power} is {dangerous|harmful|hazardous|risky} and if not {used|utilized|employed|utilised} {correctly|properly|appropriately|accurately} can {damage|harm|injury} {both|each|the two|equally} train and {user|consumer|person} so it is {important|essential|crucial|critical} that you {understand|comprehend|realize|recognize} at least the {basics|fundamentals} of {model|product|design} train electrical wiring and the {basics|fundamentals} of the transformer {functions|capabilities|features}. I hope this {article|write-up|post|report} {helps|assists|aids} you have a {better|much better|far better|greater} {understanding|knowledge|comprehension|comprehending} of the way it all {works|functions|operates|performs}.

Frequently Asked Questions...

Can a model train track be set up to automatically go in the other direction when it runs out of track?

I have a pretty large Thomas the Tank Engine train set with a Lionel Transformer. This set as handed down to my son. Instead of making the track a complete circuit, I was thinking of setting the track up so that when the train gets to the end of the track, it would automatically reverse and go into the other direction. I don'tt know anything about model trains, so I hope I am explaining this correctly. I think the track is O gauge. The track has only two brass rails, no third rail. The Lionel Transformer has a forward/reverse wwitch and a speed dial. Thankd!


Answer:

It is possible to do that.
Two photo cells, one near each end of the tracks.
When the train breaks the light beam, the photo cell can be wired, with auxiliary electronics, to stop the train, reverse the voltage from the transformer and restart the train going the other way.
There is circuitry needed, a couple of timers and a double pole double throw relay to replace the forward reverse switch on the transformer.
Another SPST relay to turn the transformer on and off between switching direction.

The best way to do this project is to find a local electronics person, maybe a high school kid.
Check with friends to see if they can point you towards some help.

Other ways would be with a small PLC computer or a lap top.
Other sensors could be used in place of the photo cells.

You might re-post this question including my suggestions/ ideas and see if some one can draw you up a wiring diagram and parts list.
Sorry, as interesting as this project would be, I can not devote time to it.
