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.
This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.

Ratings and Reviews
Sound settings need work
Overall, this app works nicely. Lots of support for older Lionel accessories, which is nice. My only gripe is that the sound on/off setting isn’t stored when the app closes. And even with sound turned off, pressing a momentary button or toggle switch for accessories pauses any music you may have in the background. This means I can’t use this app and (reliably) play music at the same time. Fix that and it’d be perfect.
I do not know how to use legacy but great app! 😃😄😄😃 (i use lionchief plus) I am working on my train layout its being an empire one step at a time
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!!!
