Anyone know a trick or am I boxing it up off to Lionel?
I can't help you on anything related to these high end products. This much I do know: You're not sending it back to Lionel, because they don't service any product outside of the warranty period which you are clearly long out of.
If people here can't talk you to a solution, then your only option is to send it to a qualified service tech who works on these sorts of products, of which there are a few on this forum.
