    On my post war Lionel engine, # 1862, whenever the engine crosses a contol track or a switch it reverses. Anyone have an idea as what to look for?

    Thanks: Vic

    Its losing contact. Check the tires and center wiper.

    engine reversing

    Thanks for the response. What is a good way to clean the wheels and pick ups?
