    I think your engine may have dirty wheels, I'm guessing your other engiens run fine
    Anyways on Lionels when power is interrupted to the motor the locomotive will siwtch to neutral, if its interupted again it willls witch to reverse, interrupted again and it will siwtch to neutral, if its interrupted once more it will go to forward
    If you have dirty wheels and power is interrupted the engine will change directions
