SOURCE: Need help setting up Lionel North Pole Central

I had the same dilema and trains are not new to me. Look under the piece of straight track that has a notch in it for the wiring. There will be a clip to hold the wire and a piece of plactic that looks like a block. One either side of that is a metal tab that one end of the wiring slides over. Actually each piece of the Fastrack has one of these. Only one has a notch but you can notch any one.

SOURCE: Need Z4000 transformer (trains) manual

We were able to locate a Z4000 transformer manual. Found out our problem was a connection problem with the track and not a problem with the transformer. Thanks anyway.

Hi,

Sorry to say but New Bright does have these replacement parts hence you need to try hardware stores to see whether you can get a similar adapter . Check the V and the power it should not be an issue.

Thanks

SOURCE: The Cw 80 watt transformer

If you have a volt meter you can check the rails for power, Check the transformer wiring to the first rail connection and then along the rails for loss loose connection(s). If you have power to the rails it is an issue with the Engine, Check any brush or rail riders (connections) for a bent or broken tab. If for a temp fix in a broken connection tab or brush you can use Tin foil. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how do I replace the

These transformers are fusioned together which takes a skilled hand with a hot blade to separate the bottom from the top shell. Hot blades are commonly used by glass repair techs that replace windsheild on vehicles

When my soon put his pennsylvania flyer train set he unhook the wiring to the fasttrack itself. How to we put in back on the fasttrack?


turn the terminal track(where the wires were connected) over,
you should see 2 screws where the wires were attached.
loosen the center rail screw, strip the wire with the red end back - 1/2 inch on the end that was attached to the screw, place wire around the screw & tighten. repeat with the other wire attaching it
to the screw on the outside rail where it was previously attached.
reconnect the terminal track to the rest,connect to your transformer
and play with your train.

Lionel f7 only runs in reverse


Have you checked to see if the direction switch is on? Most Lionel locomotives can be set to run in one direction by turning the direction sequencing off. This is true for the newer electronic direction circuits and the older electromechanical E-units. Sometimes the direction units fail and the locomotive will only go in one direction or sits in neutral. If that is the case, the direction unit will need to be serviced (mechanical type) or replaced (electronic type). Go to Lionel.com for additional information and help.

Can I use the cw-80 transformer on any Lionel train set from year 1948 to the preasant , thanks George


You should be able to. The Lionel transformers all put out AC power, not DC and many Marx and American Flyer transformers will work too. The real question is total amount of power being drawn and whether or not you have the wattage to match your engine and accessories. With the CW-80 though, it should put out plenty. I run my pre-war 1666E engine pulling a full compliment of metal cars with no problems using a CW-80.

I bought the 6-30089 Pennsylvania Flyer Train Set last year. It's been in storage in the original box in a cool, dry place since last Christmas. I put it together, but it will not run. There is power to...


Hope you got the set working. If not, look underneath the locomotive near the rear (under the "cabin"). There are two switches, one on either side. One says "Smoke", the other says "Reverse". If the "Reverse" switch was set to "Off" when the locomotive was in Neutral, it will stay in neutral even when the power is cycled or the "Direction" button is pressed on the power supply. Even in Neutral, all the lights will work and I believe the smoke element will heat up but won't puff. Whatever setting the "Reverse" switch is on, try changing it to se if that works. Hope this helps...

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.

Runs only in reverse i have other pre war 1681e does the same


Have you changed transformers? You can also make a Lionel run in opposite direction by using the throttle control...just go to stop and then to power and then back to no stop and right to power. That often works.
