DIRECTION BUTTON WORKS BUT IS SOFT--SELLING AS DESCRIBED
If you only need power, direction control, and whistle/horn control, then you can save a few bucks by picking THIS one up.
You are looking at the best Lionel transformer on the market currently. This is the scarce and desirable CW-80 that comes with some of the more deluxe sets. Most folks buy these to replace the 40 watt dud that comes in most of the sets--you need more power, and you need it NOW.
Great for any AC powered trains such as Lionel, American Flyer, Marx, MTH, K-Line, more.
Enjoy operating your favorite locomotives, train sets, and accessories with the 80-Watt CW-80 Transformer. From the handsomely designed controller, reminiscent of the famous Lionel ZW, you control speed and power by raising and lowering the engineer handle. Operate your favorite features with the bell, whistle/horn, and direction buttons. On the rear of the unit, you will find a 0-18 volt variable AC output, as well as a programmable AC output for accessory operation. Simply set the accessory voltage to your desired output, and your accessory operates at that output until you turn the unit off–even when you stop the train! Perfect for train sets and small- to medium-sized layouts, the CW-80 provides the power you need to enjoy all your Lionel favorites.
This one has extra ports for accessories and can handle bell and whistle/horn sounds in your engine.
