Will Lionel Maintenance Kit work with MTH trains?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if the Lionel Maintenance kit would work with the MTH trains?

 

Just curious. Just got my R-1 yesterday and I was told that the battery need to be changed and also the wheels need to be oiled and stuff.

 

Thanks

 

As a collector/operator, I use various products to clean my MTH Subways with. However, Im not sure if it will hurt the cars if you use Lionel products. The battery I believe would need to come from MTH. But oil and stuff, im sure Lionel, or any household hardware oil can be used.:tup:

Thank you sir.

 

Glad to learn something new B)

 

I wanted these R1's since last year but didn't have the money. I bought the R-40 slants instead.

 

Luckily one year later on the anniversary that I bought the slants, I was able to get a good deal on the R1's from ebay. Price was $636 plus shipping and handling.

 

Well worth the investment as she's not that easy to find these days.

It seems that EVERYONE has an R1... Execpt for me... I can't find one for a reasonable price. All I have are the R26's, SD70ACe, and an 0-6-0 steam engine. I heard that trainworld has the R-40 Slants for $349.99. Should I go for it Zach??

-(A)(N)(D)<R>(E)(W)

 

P.S. Yeah It should work, but only if you use the oil, grease, and track cleaner. The battery needs to be from MTH, just like zach said.

I know, For $349 Im thinking of getting another B):tup: Signing it up as the (:). For $349, thats a good price.

 

Yeah, the R1s are rare now. I bought mine a few weeks after they came out like in 06. I paid what?, Like, $429.00 for 4, and $150 for the 2 cars? Something like that.
