Not sure what you mean by "everything works buy I can't make it move".Well, it can be several things. If you are sure the batteries are good, contacts clean and there is a little movement of the wheels when turned on, then it needs cleaning of the gears and some lubrication. Alcohol will clean it, use a little brush. There is a light grease sold in hobby shops for train's plastic gears. Or you can use a drop of any light oil, like for sewing machines.
Sometimes motor can be stuck, needs to be turned and soaked/cleaned with alcohol.
If it seams that motor is not getting power/voltage, you would need to get voltmeter and trace the voltage from the batteries through the wires and switch, to the motor.
Seams that you would need to open it/put it apart. If you do it carefully, you don't really need a manual.

If you can't fix it, and you think engine is bad, search eBay for it, there are some engines and cars, individually, for sale. Items found similar to Toy State Christmas Magic Express Train Music...

New bright santas christmas express no, 187 train wont smoke


This goes back about 40 years for me. Both Lionel and TYCO had "smokers" in their train sets. My recollection was that the "special smoke oil" was a mixture of very highly refined kerosene and parafin wax. Try a hobby shop such as Hobby Town or some such.

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!!!

Need replacement track for train set


is there a way to make wooden tracks for this inflatable to sit . all you would have to do is measure the distance between the wheels and the cut the lumber and screw together. i would use 2 x 4 x 8 feet long . and cut the braces just the right lenght so the train would sit on the track. you could even paint the rails gray or silver and the braces black to off set the colors of the train it self .
