SOURCE: I have a complete Lionel Electronic Control train

Yes it can be fixed. Does the transmitter work? I am asking if other cars and the locomotive respond to the transmitter ECU-1. The dump car is a little different from the other cars as you need to hold the button down for several seconds to get it to dump momentatrily to uncouple. There is a thermostatic time delay as part of this car's receiver.<br /> Look it up in the old Lionel Service manual (original or Greenberg reprint) or the Greenberg operating guide (small thick hardbound book)<br /> <br /> Ed

SOURCE: Purchased a Lionel New York

The magnet may not have enough punch using track power. Recommend you use an aux power source fixed 10 to 13VAC supply and not track power. There may also be a slight + difference between the track magnet head and the plate on the coal car so that there is insufficient force to release the dump mechanism.

I have a Lionel 7796 New York Central. The remote blinks a constant red and it does not operate the locomotive.I thought it was the remote so Lionel sent me a new remote but the same problem exists.


The locomotive is not receiving the single from the remote . You need to paire them. In the Manuel should be intuitions for pairing. Hope this is some help.

Lionel o guage polar express set transformer has a bell button but don,t work no sound


IfIam correct, the basic Polar Express came with just a whistle. There is an optional coal tender that has a better sound system in it...Whistle bell and steam sound also try reversing the power wires at the transformer or track

Replace belt on 397


Many toy train part suppliers have the replacement belt. It does require some dismantling to replace the belt. Tip wrap a layer of package tape where the belt runs not over the lower pulley but along the path of the belt, it helps prevent coal bits from jamming in there. Once you have replaced the belt and have reassembled the unit NEVER use anything other than Lionel 206 Coal or its latest incarnation. Other materials are either too heavy or too fine and will jam the mechanism.

I bought the set last year of holiday lionel trains g replaced batteries, have light on remote and noise from engine but no movement? any ideas


If all cars are not properly on the track, the engine does not have enough power to pull the cars. Try with engine and coal car only to zero in on cause.
