Question about Lionel Trains Santa Fe Flyer Freight Train Set
F7 b-unit wont run forward
Posted by rick rice on
Have you checked to see if the direction switch is on? Most Lionel locomotives can be set to run in one direction by turning the direction sequencing off. This is true for the newer electronic direction circuits and the older electromechanical E-units. Sometimes the direction units fail and the locomotive will only go in one direction or sits in neutral. If that is the case, the direction unit will need to be serviced (mechanical type) or replaced (electronic type). Go to Lionel.com for additional information and help.

No doubt the transistor in the motor controller inside the engine is shorted TIP31C Q6 If you have the skills you can repair the unit. Parts are cheap, like 50 cents. Expense is shipping. Have repaired at least one that had the probblem you describe

You do not specify which Santa Fe steam engine you have, but I am going to guess it's the Santa Fe RTR O27 set...
Here's a link to the manual for it. Go to page 9, read the last paragraph on the page. It may be the answer to your problem
Hope this helps.
