I have a "riding the rails" lionel steam engine that i put up at Christmas time for my boys. I just put it up today and it was working fine but then it won't cycle the way it is supposed to. It will run in reverse, if I stop the train it is supposed to go to nuetral then forward. Mine will continue in reverse. If i use the "direction" button it will cycle into neutral then go into reverse again. If I keep starting and stopping eventually it will get to forward then when I stop it will do the same thing. Any help. The set has been run maybe 10 hours at the most! Last year the whistle was stuck on and had to be fixed. I know I didn't buy a $600 locomotive but these problems are dissapointing to say the least. Are these problems common to these Lionel "starter sets"? I never had any problems with my HO layout when Ii was a kid.
