Lionel Layout Control System connects and operates model locomotives, switches, accessories, track power or lighting on any model railroad. The LCS App uses the Lionel LCS Wi-Fi adapter to connect your iPad to your LCS-equipped train layout. Build up track sections and control switches, power, and operating tracks with the touch of a finger. Connect to a Lionel LEGACY base to view and edit your locomotive roster.
Note: Connecting requires the LCS Wi-Fi and other LCS hardware control devices. To operate Lionel command-equipped locomotives a Lionel Base-1L is required. Full functionality requires a Lionel Legacy Base. All available from Lionel LLC.

Lionel LCS iPad

Having repeated problems with corruption of completed screens after exiting and returning to the program. Before exiting all appears to be working well but occasionally on returning to the program all or some screens appear to show ALL previous editing done on the screens with track icons scattered over the screen. Very disturbing in that the screen must be cleared and re-created. Memory leak????
Otherwise a great idea, hope to see it working soon!!!



Ok some of you may have been waiting for the lcs wifi to come out well it should come out today. I have my layout all planned and I have the power supply and I am ready to go this app is amazing

Promising Start

I agree with other reviewers on editing/saving-I lost work several times, which accounts for the two stars, otherwise I'd rate it higher.
Think of this as what every not quite ready for prime time app (you need the Lionel wifi module to really see what it can do and Lionel just barely announced pricing but not when it's going to be delivered yet).

For building your screens for layouts, It needs to add some more track pieces like the wye, half section turn, accessory pieces, and the ability to select, copy, and move connected sections around the screen.

A promising hint of things to come.
