Question about Brio Polar Express Battery Engine
Can I buy a new motor for the engine? the engine light lights but will not move and the engine by itself does not move although it looks like power flows thru the motor to get to the headlight.
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.

Alas, the traction drive on these Brio locomotives seems to have a pretty short life. According to a Brio rep, the only hope is to indeed give it a good firm solid whack down onto a hard surface (table or floor) in an attempt to get the internal pressure gears to settle down and get more traction. There's a 50/50 chance it might work. There is no other solution. Attempting to open it up will create a mess because it's almost impossible to get all the tiny loaded springs back into place. At least the lights and sounds still work, and it can be easily pushed around the track--it just will no longer do so itself...

SOURCE: Wooden train set track, pegs
If it helps I've repaired similar track by plugging the hole where the peg went with a small rawlplug trimmed to fit then screwed in a metal eye fixture (1 cm diameter) of the type used in hook and eye fastenings or to hold up net curtain wires. The eye fits the adjacent hole and the eye can be screwed in and out or tilted to fit.
