      This is a common problem with locomotives that have been taken apart for
      service or lubrication and then reassembled incorrectly. For electric and
      diesel locomotives with moving trucks, simply switch the trucks. For small
      steam engines, turn the motor housing 180-degrees. For other models, you
      may have to flip over the motor. To determine which engines are running
      correctly, and which need to be fixed, remember that the right-hand rail is
      always positive, and the left-hand rail is always ground (from the point of
      view of the train engineer).

      More details on fixing engine direction can be found here:
