    I recently bought a Lionel Reading t-1.
    It worked fine until today.
    It wouldn't whistle so I switched the wires
    and I got it to whistle. I then added the bell button.
    Red to transformer and black to middle rail.
    Everything went downhill from there. I now have no
    sound and it only goes in forward. No reverse when I
    press the direction button. I switched the button under
    the tender, checked the pins and removed the bell switch.
    What did I do?? Please help. My daughters were excited about
    it until this happened.
    Thank you.
