I can help you find the parts you need for the Lionel 1987 Electric Gold Rush Special 0-6-0 Locomotive. The parts you need are bushings for the wheels. I recommend looking at hobby train parts suppliers such as Lionel Trains, Trainz, and Model Railroader for the bushings.

The wheels on Lionel The Polar Express LionChief 2-8-4 don't move, or are stuck.


Please make sure that the wireless controlloer power switch is set to "on." Please also give the train a new command. If it does not start to run, either your engine or remote need repair and you would need to reach out to Lionel by calling 1 (586) 949-4100.

Thank you.

There is a bent eccentric rod on our PolarExpress locomotive. How hard is it to remove and replace it? Does it require special tools or an engineering degree?

It should not be too difficult to replace the entire rod assembly including the valve rod eccentric rod and eccentric crank. THe crankpin in the drive wheel holds the eccentric crank to the wheel at the top there should be another screw freeing the valve rod and crank in one piece. two screws and 10 minutes you should be done. I am basing this on other Lionel locomotives including the Southern Crescent 8702, 736 and 1656

The value of a train set 1953 Locomotive 1130

A Lionel 1130 is a "Scout" type locomotive....they are not particularly valuable even to collectors. They were a part of the low end starter sets Lionel made. Now if you had a similar vintage 736 Berkshire or a 681 or 682 Turbine they are worth considerably more.

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.

Lionel train wheels stuck on locomotive

What locomotive? Which wheels? Are they stuck if you try to turn them by hand or don't they turn when you supply power to the locomotive?

Our Lionel Holiday Tradition Express Set 7-11102 will not move even though all of the other functions work properly

Did you check the reverse switch? Be sure that it is turned ON. If your locomotive still will not run, check that there are no fibers wrapped around the wheel axles or any exposed gears. If none of these fix the problem you will need to take your locomotive and tender to a Lionel Service Station.

I bought the 6-30089 Pennsylvania Flyer Train Set last year. It's been in storage in the original box in a cool, dry place since last Christmas. I put it together, but it will not run. There is power to...

Hope you got the set working. If not, look underneath the locomotive near the rear (under the "cabin"). There are two switches, one on either side. One says "Smoke", the other says "Reverse". If the "Reverse" switch was set to "Off" when the locomotive was in Neutral, it will stay in neutral even when the power is cycled or the "Direction" button is pressed on the power supply. Even in Neutral, all the lights will work and I believe the smoke element will heat up but won't puff. Whatever setting the "Reverse" switch is on, try changing it to se if that works. Hope this helps...

I have Lionel 682 s2 turbine. Front axle and both front wheels are stripped. Wheels spin on axle. Need (2) 682-11 front wheels with boss. Need swaged front axle 681-18. Need (2) 681-23 center wheels. Need...

Your best bet is to take your locomotive to a Lionel Service Center. All these parts and diagrams are available but some special tools are required.
