I started with Maerklin some years ago by buying Maxi sets, all of which I run with a 6446 transformer in AC.

I then decided to move deeper into Spur 1 and recently purchased the 55024 Berlin Commuter set.

It arrived, I put it on the tracks, turned on the transformer and --nothing.

I understand the passenger LEDS are run in digital only. So, I have no passenger lights.

I thought the set would run in AC.

Curiously, there are traction tires on one side of the driving wheels. How does the loco get power?

I need some help to understand these issues and to get it running.

Should I go digital and, if so, what is required?

Thanks, Mark

Hi Mark,

The loco must be switched to "AC-mode" if you like to run it with your transformer. You must find a small switch as shown on the sketch below:
