    I'm looking to sell my Lionel TMCC JLC Challenger, but I'm looking for a website to list it on that doesn't take 20% of the revenue like EBay does. I am looking for a place that's cheap, and where its likely to sell fast.

    This is my Lionel train set which I was given as a gift as a child around 1987-88. It gave me and my younger siblings (I'm the oldest of 5) lots of joy every Christmas as children. I believe the train and most of the accessories are from the 1970s (the older transformer's manual says Oct 21...

    Hello, My first post here! When we set up our Lionel 6-31960 Polar Express train around the Christmas tree this year, the CW-80 transformer made buzzing noise and the train did not move. The green light came on, and the engine made humming noise like it was about to go but did not move. The...

    Greeting all, I have recently acquired a 1946 Lionel #164 Log Loader. I was able to get the motor and lifting mechanism cleaned, lubed and running exceptionally well. The "off-loader" is a different story. The solenoid fires ok. However, the cams seem to have to much play between them...

    Hi, I'm just getting serious about model railroading after having a 2026 set since I was a boy that sat in a box for decades I'm embarrassed to say. So now I am doing research, going to shows and expanding my set. I would like to build a layout that has two levels but the engines I currently...

    I have just switched to the Cab-2 Legacy control. I replaced a Cab-1L/Base-1L system. I cannot get the Cab-1L to connect to the legacy base. I have tried changing channels. When I do this I get three beeps from the CAB-1L indicating the base was not found. The Cab-1L/Base-1L combination works...

    I picked up a Lionel Type 4050 60-W transformer and the speed control when in the off position still has power. I have never worked on a transformer before, does anyone have a resource on how I might fix this problem. Other than not going to "off" the transformer does not hum or get hot -- it...

    I am looking for the 6-81101 Polar Express 10th Anniversary Set. I purchased one Dec 2016 and then Hurricane Harvey took it from us along with all of our other trains...

    "As illustrated in Figure 3, rotate the top of the switch stands to throw the switches. These switches are equipped with a non-derailing feature. The train’s wheels automatically throw the blades to the proper position when the train travels toward the converging track. If you experience...

    I recently purchased a 2328 at a train show. Ran great on the test track but after I got it home and ran it for 1 minute I could smell an electrical short. The horn also does not work. Does anyone know where to find the wire layout for it? Also any suggestions on troubleshooting and...

    I have a super old Lionel 8300 engine and 4125 Transformer from my childhood (40 years ago). Over the last few years I have been visiting a Local Model Train Show each year and picking up Christmas Cars for it to run around our Christmas tree. My 6 Year old loves going. Anyway, the engine is...

    Hello All, Up for sale I have a lot of Lionel O Gauge Fastrack. I bought a working layout and disassembled it as I am an Atlas O kinda guy. I did run trains on it before taking it down, and the track runs well. I have wiped it all down, but a few pieces could use some scotch-brite. There is one...

    So after 30+ years dominated by a career and family, I am diving back into Lionel, I have been accumulating postwar equipment for a while and now will begin a layout.
