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 bought the set last year of holiday lionel

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.

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.

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

Help please. Lionel (30190) Thomas & Friends remote O gauge. Train won't move. Light comes no, nothing. I took the roof off and made sure the switch was in the on position. ??


First, check to make certain that the batteries in the remote are good.
Second, if the train has been running and the problem is new, clean your wheels and pick up roller on the locomotive, then clean the track.
Make certain that when you use the remote, you orient the antenna in an upright position and are within 6 to 8 feet of the locomotive.
If none of the above helps, contact the Lionel Service Department.

My grandchildren have a Lionel Little Lines train set. The problem is that it sat for a long time unexamined. It turns out now the remote control is missing. Without that, everything else is useless. ...


First contact Lionel. If they can't help then try any local hobby store dealing in model trains. Search the Internet. There are also bidding and sales sites like eBay, Amazon, and Craigslist.

I accidentially broke the signal flags off my sons manual switch. The Lionel website is terrible and I can't find any part listing for the switch to order a new piece. Any suggestions?


My son broke his off as well. We had just added the outer loop expansion pack and it was broken within 10 minutes. I found the replacement part on the Lionel website after much difficulty. I plan to buy a replacement to use one day when we have a more permanent track layout. I removed the flag from the other switch for safe keeping while he continues to play with it on the carpet. This is very poor design by Lionel. I think they should include a replacement part with the switch, or at least provide instructions in the manual for ordering a new part. I have wasted several hours today instead of enjoying the train with my son.
