The red button on the right must be held down for anything to move. It turns the lights on, makes some train noises, then moves forward. If you don't hold the button down, nothing will happen. Note that when the train is underway, the left red button becomes a train whistle. Otherwise, when the train is not running, that left button produces music. Hope this helps.

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".

Hi

Have you tried keep pressing the right hand button down. When you press the button down and hold the press, then the sounds are finished, the trains starts driving. When you release the button the train stops at once.

Help please. Lionel (30190) Thomas & Friends remote O gauge. Train won't move. Light comes no, nothing. I took the roof off and made sure the switch was in the on position. ??


First, check to make certain that the batteries in the remote are good.
Second, if the train has been running and the problem is new, clean your wheels and pick up roller on the locomotive, then clean the track.
Make certain that when you use the remote, you orient the antenna in an upright position and are within 6 to 8 feet of the locomotive.
If none of the above helps, contact the Lionel Service Department.

Where does Stanley the train's battery go


There are apparently 2 different models of the Stanley train for the Trackmaster. One comes with a tar car and one is by itself. If you have the one with the tar car, the battery goes in that. If you have the one that comes solo, then you have to flip it over and in the middle of the bottom is a small screw that you have to unscrew and remove the middle wheels to take the top off. Once you have the top off, the battery is located there. I hope this helps.

How do I change the battery in a motorized wooden railway engin for thomas the train


2 options.

1.if its the kind that fits on the wooden track look for a screw (philips/star screwdriver) on the underside of Thomas near his face. The body shell should lift off.you will then see the battery.

2 If it's the plastic blue track you have to squeeze the right center wheel and left center wheel. Thomas has 6 wheels so the 2 center/middle wheels, after squeezing this will then make the top portion pop off.

I have the Thomas and Friends Trackmaster talking Thomas train. 2 days after I bought it he stopped working. I changed the batteries and now he only talks. He wont move on or off the track at all?


I brought one a few days ago and out of the box it talked but would not move. I returned it to the store for a replacement. I noticed that the back wheels under the on and off switch have weight on them before the train will move. If the train is not sitting on the track, it will not move, That is what makes thomas stop at the station

Does anyone have information where you can get replacement rubber tires / wheel grips for Brio electric train engines? (wooden tracks) We have a few electric engines that can no longer climb the hills...


I dont know where you can get replacement tyres. But here is a fix for the problem:
Using tweezers then fingers, pull off the existing tyres.
Take ordinary sewing thread, and wrap it around the V in the wheels (where the tyre was), about 20 turns or so, keeping the ends inside the V.
Put the tyres back on.
The thread forces the tyres further out, making some tread from the rubber available above the level of the plastic wheel rims.
