My 1941 Lionel train stops getting enough power to run all the way around the track. Voltmeter says 15 volts around all track and transformer says 15 volts. How do I test engine?


If your sure the loco contacts/wheels are clean and the track is ok then remove the loco bodywork and check the motor. You can apply a 12v supply directly to the motor contacts to test if it's running ok. If it does run ok then suspect and clean the brushes and associated connections. If it does not run try moving the motor armature manually. If it is stuck it is probably time to replace it. If it moves apply a light machine oil and test again.

Check your track voltage with a multimeter. If you get a lower reading at the spot that causes the problem, add a feeder wire to that point.

I have power to the train and it runs but it moves extremely slowly and sommetimes comes to a stop.


I'm assuming the train is track powered with a power pack, and not battery powered, so there's actually a few possible solutions. I'll work from the easiest/cheapest, to the more advanced/expensive.

First, especially if the track is old or been in storage a while, the track may have a thin film of dirt, oil, or rust that is insulating the wheels from picking up the power they need from the track. Try cleaning the track with a mild soap but BE SURE TO DRY IT COMPLETELY before reattaching the power. Also, clean the wheels but use a cotton swab and very little water. One drop inside the motor might destroy it from the inside. You can also try a special track cleaning solution sold at your local hobby shop that has HO model train sets. That will work better, especially on lightly rusted parts. Also, make sure all the track connections are tight and free from contaminants.

Then, if you're feeling brave, you can check the motor of the train itself. Disassemble the locomotive and find the motor inside the housing. Check the wires leading from the wheel area to the motor for any corrosion, or loose/broken wires. If it's not the wires which are easy to solder back in place, I wouldn't recommend going any deeper into the motor as it's better and less frustrating to just buy a whole new set.

Finally, the problem may lay in the power pack (inverter) itself. I personally don't bother trying to fix a power pack, but if you know your electronics you could run some tests of the output voltage to the track, and the voltage on the track at various points. Again, it's not worth the time or effort to mess with the power pack unless you know what you're doing. You could get seriously injured or killed by the voltage/amperage running through those things. They even have enough stored electricity after they're unplugged to cause some nasty electrical burns from the capacitors.

Hope this helps and you're able to fix the problem so you can get back to enjoying the train set. I've always enjoyed watching them for hours, especially when I set up my track around the Christmas tree every year! Good luck!

Yes, additional track is available from several places, such as Hobbylinc.com, and TowerHobbies.com. At this time, just after Christmas, they are out of stock, however. Walthers.com has them in stock (1-4-2011). You can find extra track on sale on eBay, as well. Be sure to get the track with the brass covers, as New Bright sells battery powered trains that use bare plastic track, which will not work with the 384. A Google search will turn up more sources.

I have power to the track and the controller, but not the train.


I assume you have the Treetop Tender car on the track? The treetop tender is car that makes the electrical connection between the track and the train.

1. Use a volt meter across the track. You should have about 10.5VDC on the track (anywhere on the track)
2. Even without the Loco on the track, the Treetop Tender should light up if you have power to the track. If you have power and the tender does not light. Check the brushes located between the wheels on the tender. These are the motor brushes that pick up the current from the track for the train set. Make sure they are contacting the track.
3. Add the loco to the track and plug in the large black plug from the tender to the loco. Turn on the power and press forward. The train should start rolling.

Try all the functions, bells, ho ho ho, all aboard etc ..

Add one car at a time and make sure that each one lights up before moving on to the next.

I cannot promise that this is the problem, but this is where mine was broken, and you may be able to fix yours this way.

I was able to remove the plastic around the tender and access the motor. Using alligator clips, I was able to connect the battery directly to the motor, bypassing the circuit board. The motor functioned, therefore the only component that seemed to be defective was the circuit board, located behind the speaker in the engine unit.

As far as I know, the only place to buy a replacement circuit board is from www.tigerimports.com. Search for part number MEVA0024. Cost is around $15 + shipping (around $6 or so).

I should be receiving this part by the end of the week and will report if it fixed the problem.

Thanks for using Fixya. If I didn't help your situation, please DO NOT label this advise as "inappropriate".
