SOURCE: No power to track and/or train. Power to Holiday Express Train

Check the power circuit that goes to the track if there is an open circuit, open circuit means, break or cut line that can not flow the current going to the track to give a power to the train, ok.

We struggled with this just today...finally figured out that you have to twist the small piece right behind the bell on the top of the locomotive.

SOURCE: an electricalroblem with Holiday Express train

This train set is very particular and getting it to work each Christmas is a family tradition in frustration. First you must make sure that all the pieces of track are connected properly and that the track is perfectly symmetrical and flat. We double-check the battery positions every year and find one in wrong. There are + and - signs, but they're hard to see; use a flashlight. There is a black toggle switch below and behind the red stack that toggles forward (to make the train go forward) and backwards (reverse); straight out perpendicular to the train is the "stop" position. Also, you have to start at a stop/switch station. One other note: behind the red stack, there is a smaller black stack. If you turn this, you can make smoke come out of the stack. I think I remember someone suggesting a drop of cooking oil. Hope this helps!!! Hope you get it set up for Christmas!!!

1994 Greatland Holiday Express train set. Where can I get at least two curved tracks?

There are places online that sell that track. It's pretty expensive. Measure the distance between the rails to get the correct track. Greatland may have the track, but if they don't, then look online for other places.

Lionel g gauge wont run on track

I think you have solved the problem. Check all the wheels to be sure that they all turn. The locomotive isn't powerful enough to drag a car with a stuck wheel.

Check the connection from the transformer to the track, and that all the track is well connected. Make sure nothing is touching both tracks, shorting them out.

Holiday Tradition Express, engine tender not working. Contacted Lionel Trains, they have no replacement parts or service available.

Best bet is to search the internet for Lionel replacement parts. Try to include as much information in your search.

New Bright Holiday Express Animated Train - figures do not move

Make sure you the wheels on the cars are actually rolling and not sliding (being drug down the track) Most of the animation is down mechanically as the set moves.
