Default MTS Newbie

I have recently been purchasing LGB MTS items to get the equipment to run a wireless system. I am waiting for some of the items to come in from E-Bay. I have a 55016 non parallel Loco Controller and I am looking at a 55051p transmitter but I don't know if it is compatible with the 55016 and a 55056 non parallel reciever unit I have. I have the early style decoders and MTSII non parallel unit with a 50111 transformer. My question I primarily about compatibility and if I could find a 55051 it would't be an issue.

Ed,
You will need a non parallel Tx. You cannot mix P and non P. Watch Ebay as they do show up.

Thanks guys for the welcome and the info. Sounds like there is some compatibility. I was asking as I haven't received the 55005 MTSII unit I purchased on E-Bay yet so I have not even delved into the MTS system. Currently I am using a 50170 and 50111. I was hoping to use the Loco Remote 55016 with the 50170 and 55056 but I need the wireless transmitter to make it work. My LGB's have been in the closet since 1991 so all this fancy old/new stuff is difficult to figure out as there seems to be little printed info on MTS.

To make programming easier, the 55045 computer interface is fantastic.

All cv's can be read and saved as a file.

Latest MTS software I have is version 6.00.0004

$$$$$$$$ with no warranty support yet etc. etc. I have quite a bit of MTS stuff new in boxes and planned on going this route also. Have allot invested in Computer interface, wireless remote, decoders etc. BUT, I have decided to go BATTERY POWER! I guess the final straw was the Central station taking a dump this last Christmas as my Mikado was running around the tree! $$$$ For the price of just this part. I can get a GP-40 on R/C! Going to Ric's operating sessions was another reason that sold me on R/C. I will run what MTS I have outdoors when I get my layout finished just because I have it and am too lazy to Ebay any of it. Once my locos are converted, I'll be finished.... Sorry LGB, I quit!

I just received my MTSII 55005 non parallel unit in the mail. I thought the unit had an instruction manual but nothing was shipped with it. I think most of it is self explanatory but I was wondering if anyone could scan a copy of the manual and e-mail it to me. I really only need the English portion and the schematics but it might be more difficult to scan. It would great if this forum had copies the manuals from all the electronic gizmos that LGB and others make for model trains. I would be glad to scan the stuff I have if some sets up space on the site. I am assuming no site exists. Still looking for a 55051 wireless adapter if anyone has a spare


Thanks,

Ed

Stan,

Thanks for the quick work. I really appreciate it. Now I have to put the decoders in the engines so maybe I can have a couple of locos running this weekend using the wired loco remote. Now if I can only find that wireless transmitter!


Best Regards,

Ed
