Blinking green light


Check to make certain that the batteries in the remote are good. Make sure that when using the remote, you orient the antenna in an upright position and are within 6 to 8 feet of the locomotive.
If the train has been running successfully and the problem has only just started, clean your wheels and the pick up roller on the locomotive removing any fluff etc. then clean the track. If the loco is still not working contact the Lionel Service Department on
586 949 4100 or use their website contact service. Contact Lionel Trains

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.

Ryobi 902 bandsaw makes high pitch noise. have adjusted all guides and thrust bearing


The noise might not be coming from the blade, but perhaps from the bearings on the top or bottom wheel. Unplug it and open the covers. With the blade still on, turn the wheels by hand to see if you still get the noise. Then remove the blade and turn the wheels independently by hand. Then plug it back in and run the motor (with the blade still off!). Of course with the blade still off, the load on the wheel bearings will be very light, so maybe you can provide a bit of load by pressing a wheel or or caster against them as you turn them. Be careful. Good luck!

Steering noise at turning left and right


If the noise is heard just at the steering wheel when turned left or right, then remove the steering wheel and apply a little multipurpose grease or white petroleum jelly on a brass band under the steering wheel.
If the noise is heard coming from under the engine bay, check the entire suspension system for worn out ball joints, tie rod ends, rack ends, rubber bushes and shock absorbers.

I have a Lionel 2055 post war train that I have not used in many years. I am setting it up around the Xmas tree. It ran well on the carpet when I tested it out but not around the tree on the hardwood...


Check to see if you picked up any fibers on the wheels or axles from your carpet running. Also check to be sure the pilot truck can swing freely from side to side and is not bent. There is also a light coil spring on the front truck pivot pin. Be sure that the spring is there and is not damaged. Another thing to check is the drawbar between the locomotive and tender. Your front wheels may be getting lifted off the track because the rear of the locomotive is getting pressed down. This a soft carpet may compensate for this but not a hard surface. Run your train at a speed where it derails and look closely at the locomotive to see if the rear is being pressed down.

My granddaughter has about a dozen Brio batter-powered locomotives. Three of them will not move, even with new batteries. Two of them still light their lights and make train-whistle sounds. But they won't...


Alas, the traction drive on these Brio locomotives seems to have a pretty short life. According to a Brio rep, the only hope is to indeed give it a good firm solid whack down onto a hard surface (table or floor) in an attempt to get the internal pressure gears to settle down and get more traction. There's a 50/50 chance it might work. There is no other solution. Attempting to open it up will create a mess because it's almost impossible to get all the tiny loaded springs back into place. At least the lights and sounds still work, and it can be easily pushed around the track--it just will no longer do so itself...

Rubber bands pop off of wheels


My Delta 14" had the same problem. My fix was to get new rubbers, took care of my issue. They do stretch, but the newer the rubbers are the more the will retain there form, the older they are, not so much.
