Good luck!looking for a lionel 258 service manual .
ok like for example the wound copper coil seems to have a strand grounded to the chassis too? i cant tell whats going on . the diagram shows two wires going to the brushes, but on my train onl one of them has a lug? i just cant tell. here is a vid, if it isnt clear i will take another one. don't mind my 3 year old singingDoes it have the manual reverse?
On that switch is a connection from the center rail. Lets call this hot. The hot, will feed a wire to the motor coil to generate the magnetic field to make it turn. The coil is then grounded to the frame and outer rails. Next two wires will come from the motor commutators. By attaching the the hot to one of these wires and grounding the other determines direction.
Post a picture of the connections and I can draw the wires in.
Yea, the 258 and 259 are pretty much the same... OP, I have a 259E that I can take a couple pictures of if you would like to have something beyond the diagram...

He needs the eunit connections from the brushes and the coil. Please
Can you find it in your closet?
I can sympathize with your dilemma. I had mine in boxes for as long as 20 years before my table arrived.
