Yes they do. I have the #380-2 Water Tank car (and the other 4 that are available) They run and operate just as the other cars do.

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.

We struggled with this just today...finally figured out that you have to twist the small piece right behind the bell on the top of the locomotive.

My son got this train set couple years ago but open it now. Everything is working but it won't move. When he turn it forward or reverse it turn off. Is there anything I can do???


electric trains that sit for a few years require cleaning (yeah I know how'd it get dirty in the box ) but its not the same kind of dirt u/I see its a type of oxidation called corrosion , and it affects the metal parts of set , IE: tracks , wire connectors, engine power pick-ups on bottom of engine they ALL get this light powdery stuff on them this "stuff" will not pass power over to engine and it will not run , this powder can be easy removed with a light rub of 3M scotchbright pad , I don't recommend using steel wool , but I have in a pinch before and 4 sure don't use brillo as this has soap in it (worse than powder)

Have you let the loco charge first? The instructions are a bit vague but the loco needs to charge before it runs. Not easily understood from the instructions and many have spent some frustrating hours wondering why their train wouldn't move.

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.

I have a great American express smoking engine train by new bright. The train will not start, we are not sure where the on off switch is. Please help!


Ours is a really old model, but the on/off button is located on the second car (coal car) towards the very front. It's red on our set. I am looking for help on the smoke part. I can't remember what we're supposed to use for that.
