      Can you ? I would think the unit may attempt charge the battery. This may not be good for a non rechargeable type battery ?

      Thanks. I pulled the body shell and found the rechargeable MTH 8.3V battery. Looks a lot like a standard 9V rechargeable battery. 

      I will get a new one. I bought this F7 SP Daylight set in 2001. Ran it a little and put it on a display shelf in my collection.

      Most of stuff is prewar and postwar Lionel and Marx. Does anyone have MTH experience? I'm doing emails with their service department but it is a slow process.

      Thanks for the help.

      Most likely a slide switch.  Possibly in the cab or on the tender - either underneath or camouflaged beneath a hatch.

      Thanks Jim. I have cycled the direction switch on my ZW transformer several times...no change. Is there a hidden switch to cut out the motor like the ones on top of Lionel steamers?

      This is a different topic, but can anyone give me some advice on a MTH F7 SP Daylight?
