SOURCE: I never used my new

What made you think of the loco now after not using it (even as new) for over 31 years? Anyway, better late than never.
It seems that due to disuse there is a collection of dirt or whatever between the carbon brushes and the rotor connectors preventing the brushes to make contact with the rotor. Clean this area. The brushes are on the end other than the pulley or gear end. Two brushes would have one wire connected to each. pull the brushes up and clean the brush and the rotor by rotating it.

SOURCE: why is the locomotive sparking while going on the track

Sparky's is a common nickname & one
of the joys of our track powered trains.
Clean your wheels and track, it will help
lessen the sparking. Also make sure
your track is level without gaps
between the track sections.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: lionel o guage santa fe steam engine locomotive won't reverse even with reverse switch on?

You do not specify which Santa Fe steam engine you have, but I am going to guess it's the Santa Fe RTR O27 set...

Here's a link to the manual for it. Go to page 9, read the last paragraph on the page. It may be the answer to your problem

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Lionel battery operated g scale locomotive will not move

Replace all batteries in locomotive & remote.
You do need to be fairly close to the set with the
remote for it to work.

The value of a train set 1953 Locomotive 1130


A Lionel 1130 is a "Scout" type locomotive....they are not particularly valuable even to collectors. They were a part of the low end starter sets Lionel made. Now if you had a similar vintage 736 Berkshire or a 681 or 682 Turbine they are worth considerably more.

I bought a marklin steam locomotive where the wheels are frozen up or not moving at all. Any help ? Ho can repair it. Thanks


If the wheels don't move even when you try to "slide" them with your fingers, the possible problem is with the motor brushes: with a pair of tweezers gently push the springs that hold the brushes (there is one cooper brush and a carbon brush, on the motor). Remove the brushes and replace them by new ones (available from any Marklin dealer). Notice that there are 2 brush models - for old motors and new motors (these ones use 2 carbon brushes instead). Hope this helps. Best!

How is Bachmann's Blue Comet's locomotive powered. We were just given a set. The tender & each car take 1 9v battery but I know there must be more.


The backhead on the boiler inside the cab of the locomotive opens up and you install cell batteries into the boiler to run the locomotive..

Locomotive no longer smokes


If the smoke unit was working, and no longer does, it may be burned out. Did you turn the unit off after running it out of fluid? If not, it will need to be replaced. The switch is behind the smokke box door on the front of the boiler. I'm not sure if the smoke unit is a warranty replacement part, but a check with Bachmann Parts & Services & they will give you an answer.

Your Locomotive is commonly called the Bumble Bee.

I have three older marklin locomotives that are experiencing the same problem. As power is applied they start to chatter more and more loudly and will not run at full power. Sometimes they do this...


Probably the springs of the inverter unit are broken or too old. If you replace them by new Marklin springs, it shoud work. Notice that they must be the correct Marklin springs: any other springd probably won't work because their tension is not the correct one.
Best!

Locomotive won't come on


This train set is very particular and getting it to work each Christmas is a family tradition in frustration. First you must make sure that all the pieces of track are connected properly and that the track is perfectly symmetrical and flat. We double-check the battery positions every year and find one in wrong. There are + and - signs, but they're hard to see; use a flashlight. There is a black toggle switch below and behind the red stack that toggles forward (to make the train go forward) and backwards (reverse); straight out perpendicular to the train is the "stop" position. Also, you have to start at a stop/switch station. One other note: behind the red stack, there is a smaller black stack. If you turn this, you can make smoke come out of the stack. I think I remember someone suggesting a drop of cooking oil. Hope this helps!!! Hope you get it set up for Christmas!!!
