SOURCE: how to change the battery in Brio's mighty red

If you look in the funnel there is a screw. Undo this and the front comes off and the batteries will pop out. Put in the new batteries and replace the funnel and screw.

Hope you got the set working. If not, look underneath the locomotive near the rear (under the "cabin"). There are two switches, one on either side. One says "Smoke", the other says "Reverse". If the "Reverse" switch was set to "Off" when the locomotive was in Neutral, it will stay in neutral even when the power is cycled or the "Direction" button is pressed on the power supply. Even in Neutral, all the lights will work and I believe the smoke element will heat up but won't puff. Whatever setting the "Reverse" switch is on, try changing it to se if that works. Hope this helps...

SOURCE: why is the locomotive sparking while going on the track

Sparky's is a common nickname & one
of the joys of our track powered trains.
Clean your wheels and track, it will help
lessen the sparking. Also make sure
your track is level without gaps
between the track sections.
hope this helps.

Lionel f7 only runs in reverse


Have you checked to see if the direction switch is on? Most Lionel locomotives can be set to run in one direction by turning the direction sequencing off. This is true for the newer electronic direction circuits and the older electromechanical E-units. Sometimes the direction units fail and the locomotive will only go in one direction or sits in neutral. If that is the case, the direction unit will need to be serviced (mechanical type) or replaced (electronic type). Go to Lionel.com for additional information and help.

Check that you have added the smoke fluid (oil) to the engine and that it has not run dry. The smoke from the engine is generated by a small chamber with a heating element built in. The heating element gets hot as the loco runs and heats the smoke fluid up which in turn creates the steam/smoke. If there is no fluid the heating element can over heat and will smell as you describe. Not sure if your model has a smoke effect on/off switch, if it has switch it off if you do require the smoke effect.

Strasburg steam locomotive receives power, but does not move.


Try cleaning the track AND wheels with an INK ERASER. Put the engine on the track and help it along. It could just be tight from sitting in the box. I live about 8 miles from the Strasburg railroad and have 2 relatives working there. We have ALL experienced the same thing on4 different sets. It isn't just the Strasburg sets that do this, it's most of the new toys. Your Strasburg cars might not connect to other train sets. Their car couplings are different, just like on their real trains.
