MTH is good stuff Eric, so is Rapido, Walthers, Bachmann Spectrum, and the high end Athearns, and Atlas mostly in HO gauge.

Wish I could help you with your Lionel but I have no experience with them or American Flyer. I would say clean everything electrical. Contacts like pick-up points etc.. Also make sure there is nothing binding in the valve gear. Got a ohm, a/c-d/c volts, amp meter? Cheap at Walmart. Harbor Freight gives them away. Model railroaders can't live without one.

On line estate sale..priced expensive , waiting for prices to drop as they don’t negotiate.

Heres a $175 transformer now at $25

I just bought this American Flyer 100 watt transformer for $12.00 on ebay.  It should operate your Lionel too.

We are just going to need some really long leads Eric. But I just have to replace that power cord first.

I had been putting the power connection on wrong , got the Loco to move some sooooo i cleaned the track with the drill press ( brush ) on the end took about 1.5 hrs. cause i was in a hurry .. Leona was doing her thing and having fun so took as long as it did . Sprayed it with some WD 40  just to help with the rust removal after i blew it with compressed air //then in the house and here is all i have to show, but very happy and now need to get all the track up after some maintenance... Happy New Year

I would say no. Here is why, I don't have a clue exactly what your using it for (yea I am guessing trains), but exactly what the voltage a current requirements needed in your application. Can you shed some light on your requirements?

At 12V, if the core (iron laminates) is 1" thich, that's roughly ~10A (per inch), that looks to be 2" thick so ~20A at 12v. 12V @ 20A is 480W. "IF" you're looking for 12V application, a killer server power supply is less at $15~20 shipped and is 1200W 12V 100A at 220V input or 900W 12v 75A at 115V input. The power supplies also have 5v and 3.3V outputs for other stuff.

I usually buy two of them for $30 shipped, here is a ad for one, $17.25 shipped, more than twice the power (at 115V input), triple voltage outputs (12V 75A, 5v 3.3v) and much more efficient than a old linear transformer. These are not that big, about 1.5" tall, ~3.5 wide and ~8.5 inches long
https://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-579229-001-1200W-Switching-Power-Supply-DPS-1200FB-1-A/283702231380?hash=item420df88154:g:Ru0AAOSwjyZd6zhf

If interested, I can tell you how to turn easily turn it on.

There is so many applications, so not sure of your exact requirements.
Also killer 12A dc-dc CV/CC adjustable converters are ~$5 to make any voltage required (under 12V).

Maybe it's one scale up Eric.  But if it's lighted and outfitted with an interior it's up scale.  You need a tender behind the loco to blend it in.

Here's mine today, sandblasted and painted. You know me if it comes apart it's gonna come apart.  Smile

Does yours have smoke and a "choo-choo" unit?

Well Bob, you definately took the words right out of my mouth! Couldn't have said it any better. I was nervous about disassembling my first Cox engine, then a bigger rc engine, then my first four-stroke rc engine. But.... An actual mini train engine. I give you a HUGE kudos for taking that on. The ony way I would even try that, is if I did not care or ever plan on seeing it run.

Looks like a nice passenger car there Eric. Neat that it has lights inside.
