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

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.
