Let it sit for a little bit after running TMCC and turn the power off, comeback and run on conventional, otherwise get it repaired.

Check the traction tires. All the F3/F7's (two sets I bought) had the wrong traction tires and they bound up on the wheel brake bracket and they would not run but wanted to. You can cut the ones binding off to make sure it runs. Lionel will send you new traction tires to fix. Pretty easy to fix yourself or Lionel will fix it for you. Joe

I have packed it up. I do remember seeing one of the traction tires kind of binding up while it was trying to move. I will unpack and see if I can see what is happening. Before I packed it up i had turned it over and used leads to power it. It still had a really tuff time to get it to spin but did eventually. Put it on the track and it just derailed itself trying to move. Joe Do you remember if the second set that was included was also wrong? Thanks Bob

If it turns out to be the traction tires I would loose the Lionel tires as they are usually thicker and get some new tires from MTH. No sense in putting the same traction tire back on if that's what causing the problem.

Chris, I thought the same thing (Get them from MTH) but the new tires that Lionel stock work perfect. And they will send them to you for free. Bob: I didn't chance it and got new ones from Lionel. They know they have a problem. Joe

Thanks everyone. Was just reading manual online to see how to change traction tires and read about error code indicated by flashing cabin light. The cabin light was flashing while I was trying to get it to work. The Non powered A unit was smoking and the powered A was not. While I was trouble shooting I turned off the smoke switch on the powered A. Guess I will have to dig it out and see what else is going on with it. Bob

All of the traction tires were worn from rubbing. I cut them all off and it works perfectly. Going to try the other set just to see and i think I have a few others from an old engine. Now to see what the flashing cab indicates. Thanks again Bob

Its good to see you got it working. I can definitely see how something like that would cause a problem. F3's are my favorite diesels, and now that you got yours working, maybe it will become yours, too!

My Legacy F7s chewed up the tires too. As recommended on this forum, I used MTH DE0000018 traction tires. They run great now.

Re: Problem with Williams engine and 022 switches

What is the engine type(diesel GP-38, SD-45, FM Trainmaster or steam engine; 4-4-2 or 4-8-4 or a GG-1) and stock number on the engine and the number on the switch? Some people call all switches 022's and they are not 022's but modern Lionel switches like the 6-23011 in O gauge. Lee Fritz

Re: Problem with Williams engine and 022 switches

phillyreading ·
Is it a Fairbanks Morse train-master? The side of the truck assembly could be too wide; look at the step area above the wheel-set and see if it is hitting. I have not had any problems with any of my Williams engines on 022 switches. Also are you going through the straight or curved section of the switch? Is this a brand new Williams by Bachmann engine or a used Williams engine? Sometimes long engines like an SD-45 or FM Trainmaster can hit the switch housing when going through the curved...

It's a new FM engine, my first Williams. Sides are not hitting. The rear truck hits hard on all switches. Runs ok in the opposite direction.

Check to make sure the trucks pivot freely and aren't binding in one direction. I've had engines where a wire going to one truck didn't have enough slack and would let the truck swivel fine in one direction, but not the other. Also check the gauge of your wheelsets.

Re: Problem with Williams engine and 022 switches

Thanks for the info. I think the wiring on the truck is tight like you said. The truck isn't turning enough to go around the 031 track in places. I took the cork road bed out from under the switches to lower them a little. Seems to be working better. I'll check the gauge. Thanks for the info, I think I'm going in the right direction now. Thanks to all.

JHF, Just moving into our place a couple months ago I have not been able to spend much time running, most of the time is spent building and making changes we wanted to the house. I did get time to spend about an hour or so in the Train Room. Marty E just upgraded my DCS TIU's and HHRC's to the 6.1 level so I ran some Trains today. What a difference the 6.1 makes. Everything now runs perfectly! PCRR/Dave

Resurrected an old favorite this afternoon. I cranked up my old Lionel 221 "Empire State Express" engine and accompanying Whistle Tender circa 1946/47 and had her hauling a few all metal 6442/6443 Pullman/Observation cars from 1947 around the layout. She runs just as good as she did back in the late 1940s.

My Postwar 2026 Locomotive that I bought from an estate sale. It would hardly run. I disassembled it cleaned out all of the dried up grease, dirt, hair, and lint. Removed the brushes from the motor sprayed contact cleaner over all of the contacts, gears and axles. Cleaned the gunk off the brushes so they now make proper contact instead of being stuck in the holder. Brushed away all the grime that was left. Polished the armature, lubed the shafts, gears and axles reassembled the motor ,...

I ran my MTH Premier PRR G5s steam locomotive #5740 with an N8 caboose. This is a PS1 model with a BCR that I run occasionally. It is well broken-in and runs almost as well as a speed controlled locomotive at low speeds. The sounds are very entertaining at higher speeds. MELGAR
