Wiring your Dumbo Pylon with a conventional power supply

Wiring your accessory is the first step in preparing for flight. The Dumbo Pylon will operate best at12-18volts (AC), and it can be powered through track power with a

Lionel Lockon (available separately, 6-62900),or a FasTrack Accessory Power Wire (available separately,6-12053),OR through an accessory power supply. We recommend that you choose a power supply that will allow you to increase or decrease the voltage to the accessory.

Changing the voltage allows you to control the speed at which the figure circles the pylon. Figure 1 on page 4 illustrates the following procedure.

To make proper connections, you need the insulation at the ends of the wires to be stripped back 1/4” to 3/8”. To strip the wires, use a pair of wire strippers.

Caution! Only an adult should perform this task! Always use care when stripping wires.

1.Attach one wire to the #1 terminal of the track Lockon, a FasTrack Accessory Power Wire, OR the Power/A terminal on the accessory power supply. Connect it to one of the terminals on the separate switch (included with this accessory).

2.Attach an additional wire to the other terminal on the switch. Connect the other end of this wire to one of the spring-clipterminals at the bottom of the pylon.

Note! To make thespring-clipterminal connections, press down on the “springy” top of the terminal clip so that a metal loop is formed. Slide the bare end of the wire into the exposed loop. Release pressure on the terminal clip, allowing the crimped metal to pinch the end of the wire in the metal loop. Give a little tug on the wire to check if the hold is secure.

3.Attach another wire to the #2 terminal of the track Lockon, a FasTrack Accessory Power Wire, OR the Common/Ground/U terminal on the accessory power supply. Connect it directly to one of the spring-clipterminals at the bottom of the pylon.

At this point, your accessory is wired for power. The next section explains how to operate this accessory in a conventional (non-TrainMasterCommand Control) environment.

Installing your Dumbo Pylon

Choose a flat, level area on your layout for the accessory. Secure this accessory to your layout with four screws (not included) using the holes near the corners of the base. Be

sure to wire your accessory before you secure it to your layout—thewire terminals are on the underside of the base. Keep in mind that Dumbo flies in a circle with diameter of 30”. The flight path must be kept clear.

5

Attaching the figure to your Dumbo Pylon

Complete the assembly of your Dumbo Pylon by attaching the Dumbo figure and support rods to the structure. Figure 2 illustrates the following procedure.

1.Note that the supporting rod has different shaped ends. Insert the flattened end of the support rods into the tube protruding from the top of the pylon. Refer to the diagram for further assistance.

2.Insert the D-shapedends of the wires into the openings in the bottom of the Dumbo figure.

Operating your Dumbo Pylon with a conventional power supply

Adjust the voltage to the accessory to control the speed at which Dumbo circles the tower. Increasing the voltage will cause Dumbo to circle faster; decreasing the voltage will cause

Dumbo to travel slower. To turn the accessory off, turn off the power supply or use the switch attached to the wires in Step 1 on page 3.

Operating your Dumbo Pylon with TrainMaster Command Control

You may choose to wire your accessory with anSC-2Switch and Accessory Controller (available separately,6-22980)or the Accessory Switch Controller (available separately,

6-14182).Refer to these manuals for additional information.

SC-2wiring and operation

Three wires (not included) are needed to connect your Pylon to the SC-2and a separate accessory transformer. We recommend using 22 gauge wire. Refer to Figure 3.

1.Attach one wire to the transformer Common/Ground/U terminal and connect it to the accessory COMM (common) position on the SC-2.

2.Connect one of the Pylon terminals to the accessory ON/OFF toggle position on the SC-2.

3.Finally, connect the remaining Pylon terminal to the transformer Power/A terminal. Use the AUX2 button on yourCAB-1Remote Controller to toggle the Pylon ON and OFF.

Accessory Switch Controller wiring and operation

Three wires (not included) are needed to connect your Pylon to the Accessory Switch Controller (ASC) and a separate accessory transformer. Refer to Figure 4.

1.Attach one wire to the transformer Power/A terminal and connect it to the COMM terminal on the ASC.

2.Connect one of the Pylon terminals to a numbered accessory terminal on the ASC.

3.Finally, connect the remaining Pylon terminal to the transformer Common/Ground/U terminal.

Use the AUX2 button on yourCAB-1Remote Controller to toggle the Pylon ON and OFF.

Replacing the lamp in your Dumbo Pylon

Your Pylon is illuminated by one18-voltlamp. During the course of normal operations, this lamp may require replacement. Follow these steps to replace the lamp with Lionel

part no. 612-3011-311.

1.Lift the support arm out of the tubes at the top of the pylon. Also, remove any screws securing the base to your layout.

2.Remove the four base screws from the underside of the base with a small Phillips-headscrewdriver and lift away the roof and pylon tower. Refer to Figure 5 on page 10 for the location of the screws.

3.Locate the lamp in its small, black fixture. Carefully pull the lamp straight up and out of the socket. Refer to the Figure 6 on page 11 for the lamp location.

4.Install the replacement lamp. Line up the bottom of the bulb with the socket and carefully push the lamp down into place.

5.Reassemble the Pylon, following these steps in reverse order.
