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
good luck

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

Hi,

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.

I purchased a battery operated lionel polar express train set. I put new batteries and the train wont even light up. Remote works, but does not pair. It is as though I have no batteries i it.

Make sure the batteries are in the right position in the battery box .....The springs are the (-) negative flat end of a AA battery...Compress the spring with the flat end of the battery and push the nipple end (+) into the battery box...it should snap right in....There should be an on-off switch on the locomotive as well..............

Why is my polar express o gauge train set chugging not working?

There are different versions of the Berkshire 2-8-4 locomotive that comes with these sets and the process of activating chuff sound on them varies depending on which version of locomotive you have.So in order to help you I need to know which one it is. Do you have the model number of your set?

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.

Lionel o guage polar express set transformer has a bell button but don,t work no sound

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

Polar Express locomotive will not smoke with smoke fluid in stack and smoke switch on.

You may have to check if there is power to the heating element. You can also check to see if there is too much fluid. You can also put the engine in neutral and tap the chimney hole a few time to kind of "prime" the smoke unit.

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.
