Question about Shelcore Toys Toys

Open Question

The internal gears seem to be stripped on the toy train engine. The train engine will not move forward or backwards. My grandson used the train engine as a push toy which probably caused the problem. Can the engine train be repaired? What type of fastener is used to hold the sections of the train together? The screw head appears to be triangular shaped. If the engine can be repaired; is it possible to get parts? Thanks Al Higgins

SOURCE: Hi, any chance you can

There is a small screw hole on top of the train, down inside what looks to be the smoke stack.  Then insert 2 AAAs!

Check the battery. It sounds like you have it in, backwards.

Is the train new and if not, has it ever gone forward in the time you've had it? Also have you tried putting the train on the tracks facing the other way - what happens?

The tines are not moving forward on my Rotavator. The engine is Tecumsah Vantage 50. The tines move backwards and the engine seems fine. The rotavator will not move forward


I have seen a number of domestic rotavators but haven't yet seen one with a reverse gear. You didn't make it clear in your description whether yours has a reverse gear and that is all that is working or whether it usually only moves forward but is moving backwards?

While it is theoretically possible for a 2-stroke engine to run backwards, your engine is a 4-stroke that is incapable of running backwards and so it would seem the gear selector is stuck if it has one or someone has carried out repair work and made a mistake or something else is broken.

The only thing that comes to mind is some of the older designs used an over-long drive belt that crossed in the middle like a figure eight in order to reverse the driven pulley and replaced the belt with one that seemed the right size would cause the machine to run backwards.

More information needed, perhaps...

Transmission not move forward backward


Probably. There may be a solenoid not working which is keeping the transmission from engaging the forward gear train but for it not to work at all is unusual.

1988 Playskool Expres Train engine won't run. Light comes on but wheels won't turn. How can I repair it?


i recently restored a playskool express train that my son had, now for my grandson.

The on-off push switch is the yellow button in the smookestack also controlled by the yellow tab on the bottom (the on-off track can stop the train with the tab). If the light is on then perhaps the forward reverse switch (the yellow bar behind the cab needs to be pushed forward or backwards. In the middle might be off. I had to replace the motor, its a common sized DC motor 6V at 15000 RPM w/ 2mm shaft, for toys..
The bigger problem I had was that the battery cover was very finicky in how tight you closed it, and the rubber traction bands for the driving wheels were rotten. I replaced them with 1-5/16" ID x 1/8" O-rings. Still slips a little.

The Rokenbok monorail will not move forward or backward. And the basket on the monorail moves on its own without stopping or without touching any buttons.


We had the same issue here. The motor would run but the drive rollers would not move. I took the entire engine assembly apart and determined that the drive gear (pinion) on the motor shaft had slid out and disengaged from the other gear(s). I pushed it down to re-engage it and it works. A spot of glue where the gear meets the shaft seems to hold it in place. Good luck - lots of screws.

I had the same problem with two of our three engines. I read somewhere that you can get them running by hitting the side of the engine against a hard surface. I can't believe it... IT WORKED! I guess the motor gets stuck and hitting it will get it going. All three engines are working now.

No forward gears just reverse


I had the same problem with my grandsons gator and I replaced the shifter switch. I called the peg perego department at 1.801.655.0800 and they sent me a couple of switches.
Hope this helps

Sounds like the gears are stripped. If a bunch of teeth are missing, only the high speed gear will spin the gears fast enough to move the gator forward. I just bought a used one and found it pretty easy to tear apart and diagnose as similar issue. The gear boxes, located inboard of each wheel contain plastic gears and strip relatively easy if the shifter is moved , during motion from forward to reverse.
