These are real neet , there a combination of a few great items to all in one device , this device consists of two automatic crossing gates , one track automatic detector and of course a automated bell , well first thing to do is to look real careful at the track detector , these wont work if there under any stress or leaning (as this is the principle of there operation) so first see if track is twisted or leaning as it enters the device ? if all is good make sure that detector is not damaged or there isn't any foreign objects down inside it (for me its always those darn pine needles off the tree) , the reason the crossbucks don't light is that gates arnt moving , the switch for them is inside the motor housing that moves the gates

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

The gate stays down when the power to the train is on


The breaks should be on one of the outside tracks along with a wire to the gate and the ground wire from the transformer is attached to the other outside track. Power wire is attached to the center track and the power terminal on the crossing gate. When the train passes the break the metal wheels connect the ground rail to the rail with the break that is wired to the gate. This completes the circuit and the gate goes down. Once the train passes the other break the connection is lost and the gate goes up.

The gate isluggish when it goes down. It does not go down all the way. Is rhere an adjustment I can make?


Sounds like the solenoid is binding against the inside of the coil. Did you look underneath to see if some crud got in there?
