SOURCE: New Bright Model #183 - how do I make the train

This train set is very particular and getting it to work each Christmas is a family tradition in frustration. First you must make sure that all the pieces of track are connected properly and that the track is perfectly symmetrical and flat. We double-check the battery positions every year and find one in wrong. There are + and - signs, but they're hard to see; use a flashlight. There is a black toggle switch below and behind the red stack that toggles forward (to make the train go forward) and backwards (reverse); straight out perpendicular to the train is the "stop" position. Also, you have to start at a stop/switch station. One other note: behind the red stack, there is a smaller black stack. If you turn this, you can make smoke come out of the stack. I think I remember someone suggesting a drop of cooking oil. Hope this helps!!! Hope you get it set up for Christmas!!!

Locomotive moves then stops


If your locomotive continuously starts then stops, when prodded with hand/finger repeats process. Then most likely, first check your electric connection for a loose connection. If everything looks ok, check wheels on locomotive for dirty wheels, then check track for dirty track.

I have a tyco ho scale silver streak train set and do not know how the wires connect from the transformer to the track. theres one side for accessories and the other for train


the transformer shave a knob that makes the train go and go faster as you turn it
some have the knob in a central position so that one way is forward and faster or the other way is reverse and faster
accessories is for boom gates , lights , anything else that you have set up to operate besides the train

Where do ! get power to turnout?


What scale track?
If it a remote switch you will need to wire up a remote switch control,
taking power from your power source/transformer.

Electric train set stop and goes when it goes over certain parts of the tracks do I need to clean the tracks or the wheels and what do I use to correct this issue?


1: make sure all track connections are tight.

or a track eraser.
3: clean your wheels, some people use smoke fluid
on a cloth, I use alcohol prep pads,. A track eraser
can also be used. there are commercial wire brush
cleaners that connect to your power source.

We are having difficulty turning on our New Bright Holiday Express Animated Train set. Husband and I have been trying to figure this out for our eager 2 little boys. The remote seems to turn (red light)...


Here are a couple of resources from New Bright:
http://www.newbright.com/public/electric-train-faq

http://www.newbright.com/images/Manuals/384%20ws%20manual.pdf

There is no On/Off switch on the train. Power goes from wall plug to transformer, then from transformer to track clip, which must be attached to the track. A control line goes from the track clip to the controller. Mine has a green light just above the red On/Off button that will come on even if the engine and tender are not on the track. The tender does all the work, and must be connected to the engine and on the track. There are four sliding contacts between the tender wheels that provide contact with the track.

Kato locomotive doesnt run. Goes for a short time with spray of contact cleaner then stops


That means that your track is dirty. Your locomotive is picking up dirt from the track, which builds up. on the wheels. Use a track cleaner NOT alcohol... the alcohol does leave a residue on the track after it dries.

New Bright Holiday Express Animated Train - figures do not move


Make sure you the wheels on the cars are actually rolling and not sliding (being drug down the track) Most of the animation is down mechanically as the set moves.
