Lionel Tender

How does whistle on the Lionel tender car work? When you push the whistle button, what type of signal is sent?

When you have no tender car, pushing the whistle button makes the engine run faster. However, when you have the tender, the button makes the whistle blow regardless of the speed setting, without speeding up the engine. How does this work?

...sets use a power supple that steps down the voltage from your wall outlet to a nice 16-18 volts, that is fed to the controller. The controller has a large knob to adjust the level of power to the track, and two push buttons. One button interrupts the power to the track and thus forces the the E-Unit Reversing board to cycle (if the switch on the locomotive is on...but that's a story for another day). The other button activates the horn.

The horn/whistle activation button uses diodes to place a DC pulse on top of the AC signal, the horn circuit board senses that pulse and sounds the horn.
