I have an old lionel santa fe special train. It won't go in reverse and it goes forward way too fast, even when I barely turn the toggle. Any suggestions?

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.

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

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.

Peg perego train only goes backwards. no switch. only button.


does this have a special battery that is wired to plug into the train-if it is,are the wires the same colors as in the battery you just replaced-they should be color coded- to switch the wires, cut them on the battery side of the plug switch them-you can get an automotive wire splicing kit at a parts store like autozone,that you can make the connections with -cheers Denny

My brand new Sante Fe "O" guage quit running in the forward direction after about 15 minutes on Christmas Eve. I took it to the dealer and was treated rudely by the repair person. I was accused...


If sounds like something is wrong with circuit board that controls direction. If it is new it should still under warranty. Find a decent repair shop from Lionel and bring it in.
