Instructions, tips and tricks
Marx lighted accessories, such as street lamps, searchlights, floodlights and lighted stations are very easy to wire. These have two terminals. Hook each terminal to one of the accessory terminals o nthe transformer. Don't hook them to track power, as every time you stop the train, the lights go out. (We included original Instruction #1 for sake of completeness.)
Instruction Plate #2 illustrates hooking your lighted accessory to the accessory terminals of a transformer.
Instruction Plate #3 shows hookup to transformers where accessories and track power share a common "ground" terminal. Some older Lionel and American Flyer transformers have this feature.
Here are some original instructions for lighted accessories used with Marx transformers.
