Propably it needs to be reprogramed

    "Needs to be reprogrammed".... FAIL! - More likely it first needs the tiniest drop of oil on the motor bearings and gear train, then a little running to work it in. You may also need to check the motor brushes. If you don't have the original service sheet that came with the loco, join up to and someone will be able to email you a scan of the original.

I cannot get my MTH engines to run properly. Power is on, bell and horn sounds, lights are on

MTH locomotives have internal batteries that may need to be replaced. The circuit boards in some older MTH locomotives can be damaged if operated with discharged or faulty batteries. Contact MTH customer service for help with your engines.

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!

Strasburg steam locomotive receives power, but does not move.

Try cleaning the track AND wheels with an INK ERASER. Put the engine on the track and help it along. It could just be tight from sitting in the box. I live about 8 miles from the Strasburg railroad and have 2 relatives working there. We have ALL experienced the same thing on4 different sets. It isn't just the Strasburg sets that do this, it's most of the new toys. Your Strasburg cars might not connect to other train sets. Their car couplings are different, just like on their real trains.

Our Lionel Holiday Tradition Express Set 7-11102 will not move even though all of the other functions work properly

Did you check the reverse switch? Be sure that it is turned ON. If your locomotive still will not run, check that there are no fibers wrapped around the wheel axles or any exposed gears. If none of these fix the problem you will need to take your locomotive and tender to a Lionel Service Station.

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...

Forward runs good but reverse dosnt work so good unless you give it a little push but if you slow it down again it dosnt work so good again even siezes. help

You will need to perform the following :
1) clean any and all electrical pick ups (with power off)
2) check, clean, and re lubricate gearing on locomotive
3) check switch on fwd and rev for contact and dust.
4) please note that sometimes this is a really good excuse to buy a new locomotive or upgrade to a BIGGER set.

Hope This Helps,
