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!

SOURCE: Lionel Polar Express Berkshire Locomotive will only go in reverse

No doubt the transistor in the motor controller inside the engine is shorted TIP31C Q6 If you have the skills you can repair the unit. Parts are cheap, like 50 cents. Expense is shipping. Have repaired at least one that had the probblem you describe
good luck

SOURCE: polar express battery powered wood engine works and then doesn't

Try forcing a tiny hex screwdriver in the triangular hole.

Almost certainly a lose wire that you can solder back.

A great sense of achievement will result given that you didn't have to buy another one from China and trash yours!

So annoying that Brio have to use these screws given how flaky their toys are - they are almost designed to fail as the wires are so short they break quite quickly.

Good luck!

Hello just opened polar express ready to run freight set o gauge Transformer on solid green light lights whistle smoke work All switches to on Train won't budge Any tips Thanks


The instructions are sometimes a bit vague: for example, once switched on the train needs to sit and charge before it runs, but that is not very evident from the instructions and many folks spent some frustrating minutes wondering why the train wouldn't move.

There is electricity coming from the tender of the Polar Express O gauge but the engine does not run. Is there somewhere to send it for repair?


Check with the store you purchased it from. If they don't repair trains they should be able to direct to one that does. You're not the first person to need repairs so they will know.
