Use a voltmeter to measure the volts on the track. It will vary with the speed. If it's present, then the wheel pickups might need cleaning.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Check the connection from the transformer to the track, and that all the track is well connected. Make sure nothing is touching both tracks, shorting them out.

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.

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.

I have a Newbright Musical Holiday Station Electric Animated set No. 385. Everyt car on the train lights up but we can't get the train to move or take any of the commands from the control panel. What could...


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 have a new bright animated holiday train from a garage sale and I think I am missing a power cord


You should have a 3 pieces to provide power....

1. A track connector box. Looks like a "T". It slips under the track to make the track power connection. The transformer plugs into it (2 pin Molex type connector) and the command console (has an RJ11 telephone jack type connector on it)

2. A large square transformer. One end plugs into the wall and the other into the track connetor box.

3. The Command Console. Has the on/off button, forward, reverse, mute, sounds and speed contol on it .. has a connector that looks like a telephone plug.

Unfortunately... DO NOT look to New Bright for missing or non working parts. New Bright does not offer repair or replacement parts for thier products. :-( ....

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.

How do you get the engine to move? Is there a switch to turn it on?


The Engine is actually powered by the "Tree Top Tender" car. You will see the brushes that conduct power on the tender car. Place the Loco on the track and plug in the Tender car and it should work.
