Ok, i have a lionel engine question on the pulling power. The engine is a 1960 model number 44 engine, and well the problem is...the more cars i add behind the engine, the slower it goes. AHH. Ok it runs fine pulling 1 box car etc, 2 box cars it still goes, when 4 cars are pulled, at top speed on the transformer, it goes so slow, it acts like its gonna stop along the tracks but dosen't. ADD a 5th car to the track, the caboose, and the engine will not move at all, and won't pull any cars. It just makes a buzzing noise, and sits there. =( This engine is supposed to have magna-traction(I thought that it would be much better then it is.) Ok so how do i fix the engine to pull more cars like 5? Does anyone else have this similar engine, and maybe this is just a weak engine train? Maybe this is normal, but just not much fun to watch when it goes so slow. Need some advise, what would you do?? I know it can't be the track because i have another engine that i tried, an old steamer, and it can pull 9 box cars and still go fine. Thanks.
