Question by brian s: How to hook up Lionel O Gauge to zw transformer?
i have those easy connect clips for the track. its lionel o gauge and a zw transformer. there are 2 connectors that clip onto the track. do i use one or both for one track with one train? any other tips ive tried everything but it seems like the circuit breaker keeps going off. the tracks are connected and all seem fairly tight.

First of all, is it postwar or O Modern? There’s some differences between the postwar and modern ZW.

If it’s postwar, you need to have both connectors on, one attached to one of the ports (A, B, C or D) and the other connector directly on the ‘U’ port below it.

If it’s an O modern, try looking up the instructions on Lionel’s website.

Answer by Dilbert
It should be obvious from the cord. Does it any bare wires, or just connectors? If it just has connectors, they aren’t likely to fit the wrong way, so you just connect them whatever way they fit, and it should work fine. If it has any bare wires, there should be screw terminals or post terminals for them. You just loosen those, wrap the bare end of the wire, and tighten. You’re really not likely to get it wrong, so just try it, how it looks like it ought to go, and see if it works.

How does one hook up a power transformer to a Lionel train track?

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

Question by : How does one hook up a power transformer to a Lionel train track?
I inherited a 1949 Lionel train set, which runs from its own transformer. It has no instructions with it. I am unsure how to connect it to get the locomotive running.

Answer by AN-DY
You may be best assisted by a local model railway shop, club or exhibition as I am sure some participants would have had some experience with the train set you now have.

Also you may ask the manufacturers on-line:
