New Bright does not offer any replacement or repair parts for thier products.

They have a 60 day replacement warranty, but after that, you are on your own.

SOURCE: I have a Newbright Musical Holiday Station

I had a similar problem just after I had the train set for a couple of years. Beleive it or not what I ended up doing was I removed one brush from the tree top tender car (power). It has worked perfectly ever since for the past 5 or more years. Was almost like the power was getting crossed up or something. Good Luck I hope it works.

SOURCE: locomotive won't come on

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!!!

The batteries go in the first car following the lokomotive, the coal tender. There is a small black knob with a ****. Turn it, and it will open the top part, so you can put the batteries in. This train set will not take a rechargeable battery. Bummer...

Yes, additional track is available from several places, such as Hobbylinc.com, and TowerHobbies.com. At this time, just after Christmas, they are out of stock, however. Walthers.com has them in stock (1-4-2011). You can find extra track on sale on eBay, as well. Be sure to get the track with the brass covers, as New Bright sells battery powered trains that use bare plastic track, which will not work with the 384. A Google search will turn up more sources.

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.

Check to make sure you have the large plug from the tender car to the loco plugged in correctly and secure. The tender car supplies power to the loco and if that cable is not connected the train will not run.

I need the controler for the SantaLand Musical Train Set


New Bright offers ONLY a 60 day replacement warranty after which there are no parts or service avaialble for this train set.

I would contact New Bright about a replacement or take it back to the store where you bought and select something other than New Bright products.
