Question about Lionel Remote Uncoupling Track O 6-65530

Open Question

Lionel Remote Uncoupling Track 6-65530 won't unload. Postwar version will. Why?

The current version (6-65530) fails to function when 'unload' button is pressed to operate Lionel milk cars of any vintage. The postwar version of same unit works flawlessly. The current version of track is made in China. What is different?

SOURCE: CANNOT GET THE UNCOUPLING TRACK SECTION TO WORK

Track power is not recommended for this uncoupler. Use an aux fixed supply of at least 10 to 13VAC for the supply. You have to move a jumper on the bottom of the track to do this. Then there will be four wires needed. Two for the aux power (hot and common) and the other two which go to the pushbutton switch.

Note: Same goes for Lionel FasTrack Remote switches. Run the switches from a 10 to 12 VAC aux supply. There is a jumper you remove on the bottom of the switch to connect an aux supply.

I have a Lionel ZW transformer older version 1955-1956, And lately my train loses power at one area of the track and then regains power again. This happens on both the outside and inside tracks.


This does not appear to be a problem with the ZW. The XFMR does not know anything about train location on the track. It appears to be a track connection problem on the center or outside tracks or both. One way to identify a bad connection is to take a parallel wire from the common and hot terminal of the ZW and connect directly to the area of track where the train stops and slows down. If this cures the problem then I recommend checking the tightness of the three track connections. For both FasTrack and Tubular, crimp slightly the pin receiving holes in the end of the track.

Note: For both tubular and Fasrtrack it is recommended that common track power for any one section be input to the track at more than one point. In this way one bad outter or center conductor won't cause the train to slow up or stop.

If FasTrack, you can solder directly to the tabs on the track underside for a permanent connection.

It sounds as though you may have two defective transformers. Lionel has reported problems with some of their smaller transformers. I would have the transformers and the engines checked by a Lionel service station or contact their customer service department for help.

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.

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.
