SOURCE: Hi, any chance you can

There is a small screw hole on top of the train, down inside what looks to be the smoke stack.  Then insert 2 AAAs!

I wish I could help - I have exactly the same problem! Train opened Christmas Day, worked ok. Batteries seemed to gradually die 2-3 days later. Replaced all 3 sets of batteries twice, but nothing. Initially I got sounds, but nothing now.

If you look in the funnel there is a screw. Undo this and the front comes off and the batteries will pop out. Put in the new batteries and replace the funnel and screw.

SOURCE: My Brio RC train Express model, does not work,

Hi, Im actually looking for instructions for this train online? cant find any?
But.... I think your problem may be down to the fact that the train itself has 2 separate battery compartments! one in the front carriage holding 2 x aa batteries [which powers the wheels and headlamp] and one in the rear carriage which holds 4 x LR44 button cells [to power the rc link and sound effects] not obvious.
What I want to know is what are the little black and red buttons for?

Changed batteries in Brio train (mighty red locomotive) and still does not turn on. It was used for about an hour and stopped working abruptly.


I had the same problem with one old locomotive. There are three things to check:
  1. the main power slide switch is set on the rigth position
  2. on the bottom of the loco, there a small red bump, it is perhaps blocked in the pushed position
  3. this one was the solution for me. Dismantle the battery cap and make sure that both metallical parts are in contact.

I was able to change the batteries, but it will only go backwards is there any fixes?


The problem comes probably from the front switch. You might try to dismantle the loco and check the switch. A tip to open the loco: there are two hidden screws accessible from the inner bottom side. able-change-batteries-but-will-only-go-kq1qrvxr24imymdlun3n2qdr-1-0.jpg

How to change the battery in train 512


Hi Tarja, your question is 4 years old, but here is the answer:
You've probably seen the odd shaped tiny screws on the underside of the train. Ignore them - they require specialized tools and only lead to the wheels and gears.
You just need to insert a small cross-tip screwdriver into the exhaust funnel of the engine and remove the screw completely. The black front of the engine comes off and reveals AAA micro batteries which you gently shake out of the engine and replace.
As ever so often - once you know how to do it, it is very easy.
And - no, I didn't find out myself either *grin*

I don't have a Brio triangular screwdriver


The battery is easy to replace. The screw is located in the black "smokestack" and will require a small size phillips-head screwdriver to unscrew. The rest is easy--lift up on the black smokestack (I usually leave the screw in place), and the two AA batteries are located end-to-end in the body.

Brio Mighty Red 512 - Battery help


Easy to do. You'll find a small phillips screw located at the bottom of the black smokestack. After unscrewing it, lift up the entire front black part and you will see two AA batteries inside the body of the locomotive. Careful not to strip the screw when replacing the black smokestack part, as it is the only thing holding it down!

My granddaughter has about a dozen Brio batter-powered locomotives. Three of them will not move, even with new batteries. Two of them still light their lights and make train-whistle sounds. But they won't...


Alas, the traction drive on these Brio locomotives seems to have a pretty short life. According to a Brio rep, the only hope is to indeed give it a good firm solid whack down onto a hard surface (table or floor) in an attempt to get the internal pressure gears to settle down and get more traction. There's a 50/50 chance it might work. There is no other solution. Attempting to open it up will create a mess because it's almost impossible to get all the tiny loaded springs back into place. At least the lights and sounds still work, and it can be easily pushed around the track--it just will no longer do so itself...
