We struggled with this just today...finally figured out that you have to twist the small piece right behind the bell on the top of the locomotive.

Most trains will smoke if vegetable oil is used in the smoke stack. 5 drops at a time. If you want to buy the stuff that came with it, go here http://www.wholesaletrains.com/Search2.asp?Search=smoke+fluid&scale=%25&Submit22=+Search+Again+

SOURCE: The Cw 80 watt transformer

If you have a volt meter you can check the rails for power, Check the transformer wiring to the first rail connection and then along the rails for loss loose connection(s). If you have power to the rails it is an issue with the Engine, Check any brush or rail riders (connections) for a bent or broken tab. If for a temp fix in a broken connection tab or brush you can use Tin foil. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: new bright santas christmas express no, 187 train wont smoke

This goes back about 40 years for me. Both Lionel and TYCO had "smokers" in their train sets. My recollection was that the "special smoke oil" was a mixture of very highly refined kerosene and parafin wax. Try a hobby shop such as Hobby Town or some such.

Put smoke fluid in the wrong place on Lionel polar express train, got all the controls wet on main engine


Remove the shell. Soak up as much as you can. Leave out to dry or use a hair dryer on low until controls are dry.

How can I fix smoke problem on polar express


Most Lionel engines have a small slider switch which can turn off the smoke generator. Check to see that the switch is in the ON position. Check the engine manual (available from Lionel's website) for the location of the switch.

Also, if the smoke generator is always on and no fluid had been used in the generator, it will eventually burn out. Replacement smoke generators are available from Lionel.

Polar Express locomotive will not smoke with smoke fluid in stack and smoke switch on.


You may have to check if there is power to the heating element. You can also check to see if there is too much fluid. You can also put the engine in neutral and tap the chimney hole a few time to kind of "prime" the smoke unit.

An electricalroblem with Holiday Express train


This train set is very particular and getting it to work each Christmas is a family tradition in frustration. First you must make sure that all the pieces of track are connected properly and that the track is perfectly symmetrical and flat. We double-check the battery positions every year and find one in wrong. There are + and - signs, but they're hard to see; use a flashlight. There is a black toggle switch below and behind the red stack that toggles forward (to make the train go forward) and backwards (reverse); straight out perpendicular to the train is the "stop" position. Also, you have to start at a stop/switch station. One other note: behind the red stack, there is a smaller black stack. If you turn this, you can make smoke come out of the stack. I think I remember someone suggesting a drop of cooking oil. Hope this helps!!! Hope you get it set up for Christmas!!!
