Question about Toys
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.

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.

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.

Testimonial: "Thank you! Now... how do you keep it on the track? :O)"
Clean the metal wheel with rubbing alcohol applied on a Q Tip and clean the track with steel wool. Then try it. Cleaning it will provide a better contact for the film on it prebvents contact to run from stowage

I rewired my train this weekend..it now works on my outdoor setup....I found that the circuit board inside the engine had a blown capacitor and the power transitor was fried. I by passed the engine board found that it only would run backwards....went into the tender and taped into the power from tack bypassing the rectifer... By the way the engine does not start up when one uses the remote...there is a 20 second delay before starting
