Question by miket145: I haven’t ran my Lionel trains since 1992. Can I run them right out of the box? Do they need any maintenance?
I’m planning on setting up my Lionel Trains this holiday season
Answer by Alco83
They should run just fine without much trouble (it may take a bit of coaxing to break them back in). However, a quick inspection to blow off/clean any dust/dirt within the movable/mechanical parts certainly would not hurt. Also, giving all of the moving parts (particularly the locomotive[s]) a quick shot of oil would probably be a good idea as well.
