I run 3 trains and an elevated trolley on a 5X10 layout.  It's what ever you want to do.

General Lionel Model Train Discussion / Product Review: NYC diesel

Lionel's play gauge New York Central diesel arrived today, and it runs great!  I prefer steamers to diesels, so I was pleased at how good it looks. The sound effects are excellent and actually seem superior to the sound effects on my steamers.

We are currently building the Minecraft Experimental Railroad, complete with monsters, castles, catapults, and repair facilities (necessary in a war zone).

Lionel Maintenance & Repair / Quicksilver Express A Unit Runs Backwards
« Last post by TrainmanMarty on August 15, 2021, 07:14:06 pm »
I have a Quicksilver Express 8268 Diesel A (powered) unit that will not run forward. It would run reversibly forward and backwards when I first got it but now will only run backwards.

There doesn't appear to be a directional switch that I can find. The circuit board has an ID # of 00-0103-00. There don't appear to be any broken connections or obvious damage to any of the components on the board. I have checked the connections and all appear to be intact. Not sure what might have caused the problem unless a component on the board has failed.  Photo of circuit board attached.

Any ideas on how to remedy the situation ?  It would be fine if it only ran forward.

Despite researching the web, I cannot find out what "ZW" means.

Hello & Welcome to the Forum!
Sorry to hear about your connectivity problem.  If you have access to a multi meter, check each piece of track to see where your power loss is. You might need to add another feed to that area.
 STOP USING Sand Paper on your track. IF you must, use heavy aluminum foil to rub the rail surface.
Clean your track, pins and recepticals with alcohol, smoke fluid, etc on a rag or paper towels. while you're at it, clean your pickup's & wheels on your locomotive.
That should bring you full circle, listening to the clickety clack as your train goes roundy round.
Happy Rails!
dave
