An electric train is simply a DC motor and a gearbox. Take the body off and check the motor for continuity. If it checks okay, carefully, tourn the motor. You might have a broken gear in the gearbox. A good hobby shop should be able to find parts or, you can get them online.

check all track connectors(squeeze lose ones with a needle nosed pliers..check wire from transformer to the track..and during assembly, the track gets any dust on it, the wheels wont make proper contact for the engine to run..) as for the locomotive.. sometimes you can clean the motor brush comutator with a simple pencils' erasure by rotating the motor armature by hand(small as it is) to clean the pickups on this..it will better help to transferr the electric into the motor..sometimes on these track layouts, you need fine grit sandpaper to run across the top of the rails as the manufaturer puts a protective coating on these.. it wont carry power to your train..you can also use the backside of a butterknife drug around the layout a few times with the electric off.. it helps you feel any rough spots on the track/layout..

It sounds like rather than disconnecting the current the wheels are shorting the track? Does it spark a lot when the back wheels are placed on the track? If so I would suggest the insulation on the wheel axle has broken down.

Electric train set stop and goes when it goes over certain parts of the tracks do I need to clean the tracks or the wheels and what do I use to correct this issue?


1: make sure all track connections are tight.
2: clean the track using a Green 3M scratch pad
or a track eraser.
3: clean your wheels, some people use smoke fluid
on a cloth, I use alcohol prep pads,. A track eraser
can also be used. there are commercial wire brush
cleaners that connect to your power source.

One of the engine wheel is rotating but other wheels seem to be stationary. The engine thus slides along for a bit and then stops. It is a ho scale model
