Have power to the track loco cab light turns on red bow lights up but train dosent move at all. No bell or ho ho and nothong on any of the other cars


Try new batteries in the controller Be sure they are in correct. The LED light should come on when it has power. Try moving closer to the train. Usually when the red light is flickering is when there is an engine problem. But here is the Manual just in case you did not have one. Also it has a number for lionel Service in there. Good luck. =) http://www.lionel.com/media/servicedocuments/60287110222501.pdf

Hello just opened polar express ready to run freight set o gauge Transformer on solid green light lights whistle smoke work All switches to on Train won't budge Any tips Thanks


The instructions are sometimes a bit vague: for example, once switched on the train needs to sit and charge before it runs, but that is not very evident from the instructions and many folks spent some frustrating minutes wondering why the train wouldn't move.

Check the connection from the transformer to the track, and that all the track is well connected. Make sure nothing is touching both tracks, shorting them out.

How do I clean the tracks & wheels to stop the short circuit?


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.

Holiday Tradition Express, engine tender not working. Contacted Lionel Trains, they have no replacement parts or service available.


Best bet is to search the internet for Lionel replacement parts. Try to include as much information in your search.

We are having difficulty turning on our New Bright Holiday Express Animated Train set. Husband and I have been trying to figure this out for our eager 2 little boys. The remote seems to turn (red light)...


Here are a couple of resources from New Bright:

http://www.newbright.com/images/Manuals/384%20ws%20manual.pdf

There is no On/Off switch on the train. Power goes from wall plug to transformer, then from transformer to track clip, which must be attached to the track. A control line goes from the track clip to the controller. Mine has a green light just above the red On/Off button that will come on even if the engine and tender are not on the track. The tender does all the work, and must be connected to the engine and on the track. There are four sliding contacts between the tender wheels that provide contact with the track.

I bought the set last year of holiday lionel trains g replaced batteries, have light on remote and noise from engine but no movement? any ideas


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.

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.

New Bright Holiday Express Animated Train - figures do not move


Make sure you the wheels on the cars are actually rolling and not sliding (being drug down the track) Most of the animation is down mechanically as the set moves.
