If all cars are not properly on the track, the engine does not have enough power to pull the cars. Try with engine and coal car only to zero in on cause.

By the way the engine does not start up when one uses the remote...there is a 20 second delay before starting

IfIam correct, the basic Polar Express came with just a whistle. There is an optional coal tender that has a better sound system in it...Whistle bell and steam sound also try reversing the power wires at the transformer or track

Will not go forward, but will go reverse


Diagnostic: Poor connection/conduction between carbon brushes and rails.
Solution: Clean carbon brushes and metal rails with solvent. If problem persists you must need to expand the inner carbon brushes' coil spring from the second car.

Have a lionel holiday tradition express. Lights are on, but train won't sing or go forward. Changed batteries and nothing.


Have you let the loco charge first? The instructions are a bit vague but the loco needs to charge before it runs. Not easily understood from the instructions and many have spent some frustrating minutes wondering why their train wouldn't move.

WE are trying to get our lionel holiday train going. Is there an on/off switch on the train? the part that goes on the track is lit up but when we puch the remote control with train on the track nothing...


There is no on/off switch. Remote will give no indication of working. Try putting engine and coal car only and try. I have had this train set for two years and the remote tends to work whenever it wants.

The train is not responding to the remote.


I had a similar problem with my 11000 Holiday Tradition Express. I cleaned the track with an eraser (pencil-type) and then used a soft cloth to clean any possible residue. After doing this twice, my train is now running.
