Lionel train won't reverse
I wonder if you can tell me what might cause a standard gauge, relatively new train to fail to reverse when the "change direction" button on the transformer is depressed. It worked fine until a few days ago. I tried reversing the wires attached to the track to see if that might change polarity and make the train go in reverse. That didn't work. (I don't know whether it should have) The train stops for as long as the button is depressed (and lights in buildings go out as well), but then continues forward once the button is released. Any hint you can offer is appreciated.
