I have lionel fasttrack 036 switches that are not working. When I through the remote switch the "try" to switch but only go part way, if at all. They buzz when I do this also. FYI I am powering the track via 6 180 watt power bricks into 3 tcp 400 I did check the wirering and try another remote switch.

    Thanks I will try that. Where is the solenoid located? I am guessing it is under the track, yes?

If you have a multi-meter then you can check the track to see if you are getting any power on the two track rails. If you are getting power, then check the remotes with the meter on ohms.

The wirings good, most likely, hence the buzzing noise, which is probably the motor or solenoid switch trying to engage. Make sure you're track isn't presenting any unnecessary tension on the solenoid, and make sure the track is not binding at any point. The next thing to suspect is really the solenoid, and the motor is probably partially shorted, and just not engaging the solenoid enough. In that instance, you'll have to get a replacement solenoid from Lionel (google their support page or call them on the literature that came with your train).
If the solenoid is binding, try to clean it with WD-40, and oil it with a dab of machine oil (sewing machine, etc.)
Good luck,and hope this helps.

Help please. Lionel (30190) Thomas & Friends remote O gauge. Train won't move. Light comes no, nothing. I took the roof off and made sure the switch was in the on position. ??


First, check to make certain that the batteries in the remote are good.
Second, if the train has been running and the problem is new, clean your wheels and pick up roller on the locomotive, then clean the track.
Make certain that when you use the remote, you orient the antenna in an upright position and are within 6 to 8 feet of the locomotive.
If none of the above helps, contact the Lionel Service Department.

CANNOT GET THE UNCOUPLING TRACK SECTION TO WORK THRU TRACK POWER - WHAT IS PROPER WAY TO HOOK UP RED AND BLACK WIRES? LIONEL FASTRACK


Track power is not recommended for this uncoupler. Use an aux fixed supply of at least 10 to 13VAC for the supply. You have to move a jumper on the bottom of the track to do this. Then there will be four wires needed. Two for the aux power (hot and common) and the other two which go to the pushbutton switch.

Note: Same goes for Lionel FasTrack Remote switches. Run the switches from a 10 to 12 VAC aux supply. There is a jumper you remove on the bottom of the switch to connect an aux supply.

I'm not familiar with the Dash 9-44 CW but it may be that the sound and smoke switches are turned off. You will probably find these under a removable cover on top of the locomotive or under it, usually near the cab. Check your instructions or go to Lionel.com and click on support. Instructions and manuals can be found here.

You will need to check continuity of the yellow RSC wire from inside the controller to where it enters the switch connection block. Neither light will work if this wire is broken.

2nd: Lionel quality control is so poor that if that is not the problem, remove the plate from the bottom and make sure the five plugs are firmly in place on the electronic board. Since both green and red do not work it is most likely not the micro switchs but an issue with the circuit board.

I accidentially broke the signal flags off my sons manual switch. The Lionel website is terrible and I can't find any part listing for the switch to order a new piece. Any suggestions?


My son broke his off as well. We had just added the outer loop expansion pack and it was broken within 10 minutes. I found the replacement part on the Lionel website after much difficulty. I plan to buy a replacement to use one day when we have a more permanent track layout. I removed the flag from the other switch for safe keeping while he continues to play with it on the carpet. This is very poor design by Lionel. I think they should include a replacement part with the switch, or at least provide instructions in the manual for ordering a new part. I have wasted several hours today instead of enjoying the train with my son.

You must use insulator pins on the inside rails than come off the frog. Also make sure each track after the switch is wired with the same polarity. Keep power to center rail and ground to the same outside rail.

There is no on/off switch. Remote will give no indication of working. Try putting engine and coal car only and try. I have had this train set for two years and the remote tends to work whenever it wants.
