SOURCE: Lionel train power issue

Answer a number of questions:
Is the tranformer power adequate for the train and is it a working tranformer?
Will the train run by connecting the wires directly to the two points of the train (wheels and center rail connector)?
Are the tracks new?
Is the lockon new?

SOURCE: I have a Lionel War

From the impact of the train when it hit the ground, it has probably damaged the sound system beyond repair. There are multiple problems that could've occurred, such as the wires breaking/loosening, or the sound box could have broken. There isn't a realistic way to fix this, really.

Even though it may not have been your fault, you should try to prevent things like this from happening in the future.

As to the 042 switches, this is likely the same problem. You can order replacement switches online to test them and make sure for relatively cheap, however.

There is hope for you, however. Go to the link below to go to Lionel's customer service page. There, you can find replacement parts and service stations that can replace/repair your train for you, for a small price compared to the value of the train itself. Good luck getting it fixed!

SOURCE: Lionel Train transformer goes full throttle only

Sounds like the "variable resistor" that allows for a variable speed is either defective, or has become corroded on it's switch contacts. You might get lucky with some electrical contact cleaner spray and spraying it in or around the variable speed switch. Otherwise, I'd just invest in a new transformer.

Want to use this on 220v aussie supply to power 1947 221 lionel train loco Suitable?


ohh no that id not try at all , one can first use a power converter that one can buy off many online sources to convert 220 volt down to 110 volt then to transformer this will be safe 4 unit, the 50HZ to 60 Hz doesn't matter to much as well unless one plans on using the lionel sound generator , then its not gonna sound to spry as it will be a bit slower !!

Runs only in reverse i have other pre war 1681e does the same


Have you changed transformers? You can also make a Lionel run in opposite direction by using the throttle control...just go to stop and then to power and then back to no stop and right to power. That often works.
