Lionel Thomas remote chuff off switch does not work

The slot for these switches is too small to allow the slide to move all the way it needs to move. The fix is to carefully file away some of the plastic from the switch slot.

I recently purchased a Dash

I'm not familiar with the Dash 9-44 CW but it may be that the sound and smoke switches are turned off. You will probably find these under a removable cover on top of the locomotive or under it, usually near the cab. Check your instructions or go to Lionel.com and click on support. Instructions and manuals can be found here.

I have a Lionel 2055

Check to see if you picked up any fibers on the wheels or axles from your carpet running. Also check to be sure the pilot truck can swing freely from side to side and is not bent. There is also a light coil spring on the front truck pivot pin. Be sure that the spring is there and is not damaged. Another thing to check is the drawbar between the locomotive and tender. Your front wheels may be getting lifted off the track because the rear of the locomotive is getting pressed down. This a soft carpet may compensate for this but not a hard surface. Run your train at a speed where it derails and look closely at the locomotive to see if the rear is being pressed down.

Replace belt on 397

Many toy train part suppliers have the replacement belt. It does require some dismantling to replace the belt. Tip wrap a layer of package tape where the belt runs not over the lower pulley but along the path of the belt, it helps prevent coal bits from jamming in there. Once you have replaced the belt and have reassembled the unit NEVER use anything other than Lionel 206 Coal or its latest incarnation. Other materials are either too heavy or too fine and will jam the mechanism.

What does my lionel 6110

  • The Lionel 6110 Scout Engine came stock with a pellet smoke generator. Sometimes these get converted so the smoke puffs more out the front. But the way it came out of the box is pellets.

I have a primary coil

You CANNOT measure the health of the transformer winding, either primary or secondary with an ohmmeter so resistance value is a moot thing. A single shorted turn is fatal but will not show up on an ohmmeter. This is the way you test the unit: Put the core back in if it has been removed. Apply 120 volts using a 15 Watt lamp in series with the power, The lamp will limit the current to a safe value. What looks like a burn mark often is discolored varnish. If the lamp goes out, the winding is OK. The core MUST be in for this test!
