Like all mechanical devices, model trains do need a little routine maintenance to keep them operating at their best. If done regularly and preemptively this work takes only a few minutes but can add years to the life of your models.
The links below will take you to pages, photos and video of the most common maintenance routines. Of course, should you ever need more extensive repair work to your train, our Customer Service Center is available to help in any way we can. You can contact our service department at (586) 949-4100 or email us at TALKTOUS@lionel.com.
