These are all basically at the same time in sequence,

1. test batteries, need at least 75-80% power for train to operate at all. will be very weak but should operate. or use known good batteries.

2. next are the battery contacts. a lot of time the positive contact gets bent so far it either makes no or very weak contact, simply bend it back out very carefully to make better contact and clean it with a little rubbing alcohol of nail polish remover and a q-tip.
3. next would be the switch for continuity and then loose or broken wire.
after that you can email me for further help.

Led blinks when train put on track


I am assuming you are using the Lionel CW80 power source. If so, the blinking light might indicate a partial short or a problem with the motor. The reason I believe that is that the CW80 has an internal fuse, which will blow for near shorts/shorts. A stalled motor i.e stuck drive gear, can cause excessive power drain although not enough to blow the internal fuse and also cause the engine not to move. Also, If the engine has the neoprene belt on one of the drive wheels it might have come off and is jamming the running gear or wheel. I believe the Polar Express only has one neoprene belt.

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!

Lionel Polar Express Berkshire Locomotive will only go in reverse


No doubt the transistor in the motor controller inside the engine is shorted TIP31C Q6 If you have the skills you can repair the unit. Parts are cheap, like 50 cents. Expense is shipping. Have repaired at least one that had the probblem you describe
good luck

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!
