If its the one that comes with rails there's a round hole connection similar to a mobile phone charger connection at the back or side of engine I believe it's by seat somewhere

Water damaged ride on thomas the tank engine.


first of all check for at least 12 volts from the battery and the charger, you can test this using a multimeter, if the battery doesn't show any volts, lift up one side of the blue plastic housing on the top and verify that both the positive and negative wires are plugged in

Thomas electric ride on will not charge


Here are a few things to check - Is your battery charger plugged into a known working outlet? Is the charger plugged into a switch controlled outlet? Is it ON? Have you checked the output voltage of the charger with a volt meter? The in and out voltage should be molded into the charger housing. Is there any internal damage? Are you sure the battery is connected to the wires inside? Is the motor connected through the controller? Is there a fuse - have you checked it? Is the ON/OFF switch in the on position and is it actually ON? Check with a Volt/Ohm meter to be sure. How old is the battery? Can you check its voltage? Expect 1 to 2 years use only. If you get more, well you got more ... good. If it is older, that may be the problem. Volt Ohm meters available for around $10.00 at hardware and electronics stores. All come with basic instructions.
Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

I cannot promise that this is the problem, but this is where mine was broken, and you may be able to fix yours this way.

I was able to remove the plastic around the tender and access the motor. Using alligator clips, I was able to connect the battery directly to the motor, bypassing the circuit board. The motor functioned, therefore the only component that seemed to be defective was the circuit board, located behind the speaker in the engine unit.

As far as I know, the only place to buy a replacement circuit board is from www.tigerimports.com. Search for part number MEVA0024. Cost is around $15 + shipping (around $6 or so).

I should be receiving this part by the end of the week and will report if it fixed the problem.

Thanks for using Fixya. If I didn't help your situation, please DO NOT label this advise as "inappropriate".

Sometimes the battery and/or the charger can go bad. If the battery is less than 6 volts on a multimeter, it won't operate for long. Is the headlight bright or dim? Remember that the button has to be held down to run. Releasing the button will stop the train.

If neither of the above works, you may want to order a new circuit board from tigerimports.com.

Good luck!
