Question about Thomas and Friends Repair Garage Fits Thomas Brio Wooden Train Track Set

1 Answer

Does anyone have information where you can get replacement rubber tires / wheel grips for Brio electric train engines? (wooden tracks) We have a few electric engines that can no longer climb the hills for bidges because the wheels slip due to the worn rubber treads on the wheels.

I dont know where you can get replacement tyres. But here is a fix for the problem:
Using tweezers then fingers, pull off the existing tyres.
Take ordinary sewing thread, and wrap it around the V in the wheels (where the tyre was), about 20 turns or so, keeping the ends inside the V.
Put the tyres back on.
The thread forces the tyres further out, making some tread from the rubber available above the level of the plastic wheel rims.

SOURCE: how do I change the battery in a motorized wooden

2 options.

1.if its the kind that fits on the wooden track look for a screw (philips/star screwdriver) on the underside of Thomas near his face. The body shell should lift off.you will then see the battery.

2 If it's the plastic blue track you have to squeeze the right center wheel and left center wheel. Thomas has 6 wheels so the 2 center/middle wheels, after squeezing this will then make the top portion pop off.

Need to replace rubber drive tires on new brite train


If you must replace the traction tires, go to your nearest local hobby shop that deals in trains and purchase a set of traction tires. If none are available, purchase a bottle of "Bull Frog Snot" and apply the snot in the grooves where the traction tire's would go.
If this is one of the battery powered trains, you might be better off just replacing the locomotive, they can be purchased very inexpensively on the online auction site beginning with an E and ending with a Y.
If it is one of the electric sets, just do the bull frog snot remedy, that way you'll have a bottle of the stuff available for the next time you need it.

Wooden train set track, pegs missing! Where would I be able to buy some spares, please? It's for Brio compatible track, but not sure who it's made by... Help! This is driving us crazy!


If it helps I've repaired similar track by plugging the hole where the peg went with a small rawlplug trimmed to fit then screwed in a metal eye fixture (1 cm diameter) of the type used in hook and eye fastenings or to hold up net curtain wires. The eye fits the adjacent hole and the eye can be screwed in and out or tilted to fit.

Brio remote control express doesn't move anymore


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.

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*

Wheel spinning / traction issue on toy gator


First off, keep in mind that there are reasons why they make the wheels of this slipper plastic - like reducing the risk of burning out the motor. That said, you know those rubber pedal extenders for infants (the things that come with 2 wooden blocks and a large rubber band, they 'may' be big enough to stretch around your wheels. Also have a look around for LEGO rubber tracks. There are some out there that may be large enough as well. Check here.
