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?

What part of bridge is the alignment track


alignment tracks are the part of a rotating bridge that is where the tracks meet back together , this requires an alignment rail or train might derail , as this joint needs to remain movable so there is a gap there , typically it looks like a third rail spaced just inside the outer rail , this grabs and guides the wheel "toe" and centers the wheel onto outer rail , this feature requires frequent maintence as it does wear , as was evidenced few years ago by a bulk train derail in Louisiana as this was exactly what failed after crossing was hit by barge and train derailed

Will not go forward, but will go reverse


Diagnostic: Poor connection/conduction between carbon brushes and rails.
Solution: Clean carbon brushes and metal rails with solvent. If problem persists you must need to expand the inner carbon brushes' coil spring from the second car.

The gate stays down when the power to the train is on


The breaks should be on one of the outside tracks along with a wire to the gate and the ground wire from the transformer is attached to the other outside track. Power wire is attached to the center track and the power terminal on the crossing gate. When the train passes the break the metal wheels connect the ground rail to the rail with the break that is wired to the gate. This completes the circuit and the gate goes down. Once the train passes the other break the connection is lost and the gate goes up.

How to wire a Lionel block signa lwith insulated track.


Only one outside rail has to be insulated from other sections. A hot wire goes to the signal block. The other wire from the signal block goes to the section of track with the insulated outside rail. When the train passes over the section of track with the isolated rail, a connection is made to the power supply common through the wheel axel. The other wire from the aux supply (common) is connected to the same common as the supply powering the rails. Power the block signal from an aux supply not rail power.

My 2-8-4 Locomotive stops at the right hand switch and will not reverse. It is the only train of my three that does this


This is a common problem with FasTrack Remotes and Manual switches. It is relative to where the center roller pickup is in relation to the wheels (common connection to outter track rails). Solution is to put electrical tape on the outter rail that forms a V between the turn in and the straight away. This elliminates about 1.5" of track discontinuity. It also eliminates wheel sparking that pits the surface of the outter rail. Wish I had a better solution short of taking the switch apart and doing some rewiring.

Train powers up,lights go go.Press forward and it just buzzes.Doesn't move. New Bright said it's the 'Tender Car ".


The tender car supplies power from the track to the entire trian.
Make sure the train will run with just the Loco and the tender. Make sure the tender is securely plugged in to the Loco and make sure the the brushes under the wheels on the tender (this is how power gets from the track to the train) are in contact with the track. Finally use a scotch brite pad (DO NOT USE STEEL WOOL) to clean up the track a little.

You can also take a volt meter and measure for DC between the rails. You should have about 10.5VDC on the track. (Inside rail is neg on mine and outside is pos) ...

Hope this helps..
