Jeff,

     Does the same truck derail all the time? If so check is there is anything blocking the free movement of the truck such as a wire, traction tire etc. Also I do not know if the steps on Lionel’s F units are made from plastic or metal but is they are metal see if it is pushed in and blocking the truck from turning. A long time ago I had a set of Williams F units and one of the steps was bent in and prevented the truck from fully turning. Bent it the other way and everything was fine. If your steps are plastic DO NOT TRY TO BEND THEM.

    Also if the tracks are on a rug under the Christmas tree the rug could be preventing the track from laying flat. Get a flashlight and inspect the train running around the track to see if it is a track problem or a engine problem.

Good Luck

JohnB
