I have the wonderland express train won't go around can it be fixed


Yes, but before I took the set to a model train dealer I would check the basics. Depending how the unit is stored I would assume that corrosion(oxide) has built up between the electrical components.

This is so common that it can be assumed to be a normal maintenance activity.

The connections from the power to the track, between the tracks and between the engine wheels and the track.

Setting up on a table top allows for convenient troubleshooting.
A voltmeter provides a good tool for efficient analysis of the electrical circuit.

Using a soft cloth rub/polish the rails to eliminate oxide/grime built up.
Use an eraser to scrub the connections between the rails,

I've included several links to provide you with examples of problems and solutions.

Merry Christmas

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.

Lionel train problems


Make sure the A or D terminal is connected to the center rail. U terminal to the outer rail. First do this without the sound activation button. Horn should sound this way. Once this works correctly, add the sound button in on the center rail lead (A or D) If the sound activation button activates the horn, reverse the connections to the sound activation button.
This should solve your difficulties

Many of the MTH Protosounds 1 and 2 and Trainmaster will not work with the Lionel CW-80 electronic power source. The output waveform is so non-like sinusoidal. The electronic sound systems will not usually respond to this waveform and when they do, the sound will be garbled. Use another power source.

The CW-80 is not suited for electronic sound systems. The output is non-sinusoidal. When electronic sounds are generated for some locos, the sound will be garbled. Use another power source. The Z1000 MTH power source or similar is recommended as are many other older Lionel standard power xfmrs. For the sound stay on problem with switch off, try putting a fixed load on the tracks ie: An accessory of some kind (lights etc). Usually a fixed electrical load will fix this problem. Overall, I would recommend changing out the power source and save yourself a lot of headache..

Why is a ''D'' battery needed for my Lionel Diesel engine?


This is just a guess but it may have powered headlights or other lights on the train at one time, some of then even had a smoke producing device on them.

Non-functioning horn on lionel 621 switcher


The horn has a screw in it to adjust the pitch. Try adjusting it to see if you get sound.
