Try replacing your power source, the old coils may be burned out over a period of time, or check voltage on the output side!

SOURCE: Lionel train power issue

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: WE are trying to get our lionel holiday train

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.

SOURCE: I have a Lionel War

From the impact of the train when it hit the ground, it has probably damaged the sound system beyond repair. There are multiple problems that could've occurred, such as the wires breaking/loosening, or the sound box could have broken. There isn't a realistic way to fix this, really.

Even though it may not have been your fault, you should try to prevent things like this from happening in the future.

As to the 042 switches, this is likely the same problem. You can order replacement switches online to test them and make sure for relatively cheap, however.

There is hope for you, however. Go to the link below to go to Lionel's customer service page. There, you can find replacement parts and service stations that can replace/repair your train for you, for a small price compared to the value of the train itself. Good luck getting it fixed!

SOURCE: Lionel Train transformer goes full throttle only

Sounds like the "variable resistor" that allows for a variable speed is either defective, or has become corroded on it's switch contacts. You might get lucky with some electrical contact cleaner spray and spraying it in or around the variable speed switch. Otherwise, I'd just invest in a new transformer.

Lionel legacy will not run more than 2 trains


see pages 44 & 45 of attached pdf to figure out your power requirements for all locomotives, lamps/light bulbs & accessories.
compare total needed to power output of your transformer, if total is less that output of transformer, clean wheels, roller pickups & track.
if total is greater than output of transformer, you need more power/larger output transformer. lean wheels, roller pickups track.

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.

My new lionel train slows down on far side of the track


There is bad contact in the track connections. You can sand the track connection sites. Another method is to run another power wire to the other end of the track where the train slows down. Even better is 3 or 4 evenly spaced power wires from the transformer to the track.
