For those of you who obtained the black memory module and have the LSU on your computer, you can now download the zip file containing the base and cab-2 hex files for version 1.4 software. Pages 4 and 5 in the new manual (also included in the zip file) highlight the improvements in version 1.4 versus 1.3.
Lionel will not be mailing out 1.4 modules. They are available in one of three ways:
- If you recently purchased a LEGACY 6-14295 No. 990 set, it came with 1.4 modules from the factory.
- If you plan to purchase the ZW-L, it will include a set of 1.4 modules
- Download the LSU Freeware in conjunction with the black memory module (6-37125, available through dealers) and download 1.4 from this link:
All future LEGACY software upgrades will be presented in this same format; a downloadable zip file, accessed from the Lionel website, specifically under the product number of the LEGACY set (6-14295). Use the Product Finder to quickly access the files, clicking on “Software Update”. Then just click on the file and select “save.” Once downloaded you can unzip the file and access the contents.
The 1.4 zip file includes the following:
BASEv1.4 – hex; this is the hex file for the base
CAB-2v1.4-hex; this is the hex file for the cab
Manual.pdf; version 1.4 manual (including new pages outlining the differences between 1.3)
