Hi, any chance you can advise how to replace the battery in the Brio Polar Express train engine, model 2E384?  It has little triangular screw points, but I've never seen a screwdriver that would fit?  Thanks!

There is a small screw hole on top of the train, down inside what looks to be the smoke stack.  Then insert 2 AAAs!

My Brio RC train Express model, does not work, changed batteries,tried both channels A@B, and cannot find solution, please help


Hi, Im actually looking for instructions for this train online? cant find any?
But.... I think your problem may be down to the fact that the train itself has 2 separate battery compartments! one in the front carriage holding 2 x aa batteries [which powers the wheels and headlamp] and one in the rear carriage which holds 4 x LR44 button cells [to power the rc link and sound effects] not obvious.
What I want to know is what are the little black and red buttons for?

Brio remote control express doesn't move anymore


I wish I could help - I have exactly the same problem! Train opened Christmas Day, worked ok. Batteries seemed to gradually die 2-3 days later. Replaced all 3 sets of batteries twice, but nothing. Initially I got sounds, but nothing now.

How do i change a battery?


Look for a tiny cross head screw then look for a small cross head screwdriver! ;-)

That will open a compartment that you need to put 2 AA batteries in.

Don't open the triangular screws - you will have tiny cog wheels all over the floor!

How to change the battery in train 512


Hi Tarja, your question is 4 years old, but here is the answer:
You've probably seen the odd shaped tiny screws on the underside of the train. Ignore them - they require specialized tools and only lead to the wheels and gears.
You just need to insert a small cross-tip screwdriver into the exhaust funnel of the engine and remove the screw completely. The black front of the engine comes off and reveals AAA micro batteries which you gently shake out of the engine and replace.
As ever so often - once you know how to do it, it is very easy.
And - no, I didn't find out myself either *grin*

I don't have a Brio triangular screwdriver


The battery is easy to replace. The screw is located in the black "smokestack" and will require a small size phillips-head screwdriver to unscrew. The rest is easy--lift up on the black smokestack (I usually leave the screw in place), and the two AA batteries are located end-to-end in the body.

Polar express battery powered wood engine works and then doesn't


Try forcing a tiny hex screwdriver in the triangular hole.

Almost certainly a lose wire that you can solder back.

A great sense of achievement will result given that you didn't have to buy another one from China and trash yours!

So annoying that Brio have to use these screws given how flaky their toys are - they are almost designed to fail as the wires are so short they break quite quickly.

Good luck!

Need to replace battery in brio big red engine


There is a battery down deep in the steam spout on top (black chimney type thing). Unscrew it and it slides off the front and allows you to insert 2 AAA batteries.
