  1. There are no tutorial videos for the TMC-1 or for that fact there are no video tutorials found on this page . Any area I touch goes back to a product page.

    • Pat, I just rechecked all of the links, and they are all going to the videos hosted on You may want to give it another try. If it still isn’t working for you, please let me know.

  2. After installing new Legacy control and TPC 400s, the Cab 2 cannot find base. Only functions that work are on, off, scan And retry. Scans thru channels but does not connect. Scroll button does nothing, so I cannot scroll to channel indicated by flashing icon on base. I need suggestions on resolving this.

    • John,
      You can try unplugging the TPC to see if that makes everything work, but chances are something has shorted out and we’ll need to repair the base. Please contact our customer service at (586)949-4100 or email to set up a repair. Thanks!

  3. After loading blue OS memory modules into the CAB-2 and Base, it now works OK. It has Version 1.3. I can run one main line at a time out of two. I will try re-programming the other TPC 400. I have two main lines and all conventional locomotives, some with Trainsounds.

  4. The installing Legacy video series would have been much easier to follow if the entire demonstration showed a close up of the remote throughout all the various videos, as was done in the first few videos, instead of holding the remote at a distance, whose details could not be seen. The locomotive pictures could have still been incorporated during the explanation.

  5. I have recently purchased Legacy. My layout has four independent tracks. If I connect the command base to one track, will the other three tracks receive command signals?
