    thanks but it is a fairly new set and its only plastic there is no power it is battery opperated and only has one car that you cand change to either percy or thomas it all just clicks together but as i have lost the instructions i cant remember how it goes together! you can only do it one way as you just flick the on switch on the actual car and it just runs back and forth on the track picking up and dropping off the loads

I should imagine that the power runs through the base in some way like a train set so you just have to put all base units togther in order then plug the power cable in from the transformer ,cant see it being that difficult but ¿¿ if you could take some low resoloution pics and then upload so myself or helper on here could see whats what then no doubt one of us could tell you what to de exactly ,a picture tells a thousand words ,and all i got as a kid was a wooden mechano type thing .shhh iam showing my age

    sorry cant help here never seen nothing like it as such ,i was under the impression it was like a board with power running under the board ?? but if it just clicks together then it can only click into place one way?? and the tractor unit with the battery just has different bodies on it ?? what will they think of next-- have you tried looking for a thomas the tank engine web site because maybe they have something on here where you can download the operating instructions.

I through away directions by mistake. How do I put the battery in Percy. Thanks.

My child has a similar train but it is a Thomas instead of a Percy. There is probably a screw on the bottom. My son's train has three screws and the one in the middle (+) is the one that opens the train so I can put a battery in it.

Battery instolation

mcdevito75 here, I believe the battery--ies go in 1 of the wheels, try looking for a cover or squeeze 1 of the wheels for cover to pop off.

Thomas & Friends, Talking Percy doesn't move.

It has to be on the track to work for some reason. Turn it on, put on the track and press the button on that makes it talk.
I have to say I am pretty mad at fisher price for this one. The box says 3 AAA's included, when you open the box though you find out that they are "just for demonstration". So back to the store for batteries. Get the batteries changed, and then it doesn't work. Back to the store to exchange, and then find out it does work.
