long story short,,my 50 year old o27 lionel train was stored at my dads house all these years..got it out to give to a friends grandson who at six, is nuts over anything trains. all track pieces have the three pins in the ends and snap together fine..the transformer has plenty of spark, the wires are securely snapped into the piece that attaches to the track,,yet the train will not move..it has been stored in a box for 50 years but a few years ago it was taken out and worked fine then,,moving the small switch on top of the locomotive (number 384) doesn't help..the train is not damaged at all, and was played with less than a day when i got it for xmas in 1959 from sears where dad worked at the time. guess i was dissapointed that it didn't look like the displays they had all over the toy dept then lol,,can someone help me with getting this thing to run..i rebuild vintage motorcycles and have rebuilt a few cars..but i'm stumped on this..the only thing i can figure is the motor in the engine has just died..thanks..and HELP !!
