Question about Seth Thomas Bachman Thomas Annie Clarabel Electric Train Set

2 Answers

ENGINE DOES NOT MOVE VERY WELL AND IS LOUD

I have three Bachman diesel engines one works very well, one moves o.k. but stops at times and need a slight push to get moving again (this one is very noisey also), and the third only lights up but does not move.
all three trains are n-scale. I'm new at model trains so any help would be nice. Thank You

Sounds like the wheels may be dirty on the one . Have you tried cleaning them? The noisey one may need a little grease on the gears. The one that does not move but lights up, not sure. Have you tried to take the body off and see if a wire is disconnected?
Try going on line and look for a group on Yahoo Groups for N-scale. They will probably be more helpful and you will get more information about N scale trains. Good luck!

Engine not moving, looks like the piston got stack on top tdc.


This is a typical Issue. You can try turning the flywheel by hand to see if you can get the piston to move from TDC, If that does not work you will probably have to remove Glow-Plug and insert something Brass, Wood, Plastic Strong enough to push on piston but as mentioned not a screwdriver etc. due to possibility of damage to piston.
Then you can push the piston down.
If using a dowel of wood or plastic and you cannot push the piston down you can gently tap on the device you decide to use "LIGHTLY" and it should move off of TDC.

My 1993 compact bobcat skidsteer won't start, it just stopped running and won't start, I have tried starting fluid and still nothing?


Could be engine speed sensor. All fuses need to be checked. Any smoke when cranking? Any fault codes? A bad fuel solenoid could cause no start if fuel is good.

Train won't move. The sounds work great, and it used to move, but now it doesn't.


the sound runs from a different battery source, you'll need to remove the screw on the fron t of the seat and then lift the seat up and charge the battery with the supplied charger

My geotrax engine will light up and the remote makes the sound but it wont move foward can it be reset?


I had the same problem with two of our three engines. I read somewhere that you can get them running by hitting the side of the engine against a hard surface. I can't believe it... IT WORKED! I guess the motor gets stuck and hitting it will get it going. All three engines are working now.
