My first post but not expected so here goes..
I just received a Lionel Vision Line 700e part no. 6-11209 and here are pictures/video of the problem/ problems with this model. Ill start with the one I'm confused about why the backup light is constantly illuminated. I can't shut it off no matter what I do and either the engine is trying to tell me something or the light might just need to be tripped off. It's on all the time and it's not a huge deal, but if it can be remedied I'm all ears.
Next problem is the swinging bell doesn't work and the major problem is the bell yoke is not correctly in the slots so there is friction on the magnet which is making it not swing. (Video showing how stiff it is)
I've tried very carefully bending the side of the bell to remove friction, but to no avail.
As you can see there is residue on the bell and I have no clue what it is, but I might consider getting a new bell. The problem with that is lionel doesn't carry the part anymore so if worst case entails maybe someone has a spare bought before its discontinuation??
I called Lionel and they suggested graphite to make it smoother which I might use if nothing else works.
I believe in the picture of the bell it's closer to the right holder than it is to the left(closer left than right from camera) also on the engines right.
I'll post any updates if I figure it out myself
These problems are not fully terrible, but any input especially from those who have dealt with the issue is very appreciciated!!
