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.

Locomotive moves then stops


If your locomotive continuously starts then stops, when prodded with hand/finger repeats process. Then most likely, first check your electric connection for a loose connection. If everything looks ok, check wheels on locomotive for dirty wheels, then check track for dirty track.

I have an 1985-1986 talking silver rail express train set and it will move just a little ways and then stop. Has something happened with in the gear system?


My son recently disassembled one with the same symptom. He found one of the small gears in the drivetrain had split -- causing it to bind and limit motion to a inch or so. It's been in the family 25 years, but we elected to junk the locomotive :(

How is Bachmann's Blue Comet's locomotive powered. We were just given a set. The tender & each car take 1 9v battery but I know there must be more.


The backhead on the boiler inside the cab of the locomotive opens up and you install cell batteries into the boiler to run the locomotive..

Lionel o guage santa fe steam engine locomotive won't reverse even with reverse switch on?


You do not specify which Santa Fe steam engine you have, but I am going to guess it's the Santa Fe RTR O27 set...

Here's a link to the manual for it. Go to page 9, read the last paragraph on the page. It may be the answer to your problem

Kato locomotive doesnt run. Goes for a short time with spray of contact cleaner then stops


That means that your track is dirty. Your locomotive is picking up dirt from the track, which builds up. on the wheels. Use a track cleaner NOT alcohol... the alcohol does leave a residue on the track after it dries.

Locomotive won't come on


This train set is very particular and getting it to work each Christmas is a family tradition in frustration. First you must make sure that all the pieces of track are connected properly and that the track is perfectly symmetrical and flat. We double-check the battery positions every year and find one in wrong. There are + and - signs, but they're hard to see; use a flashlight. There is a black toggle switch below and behind the red stack that toggles forward (to make the train go forward) and backwards (reverse); straight out perpendicular to the train is the "stop" position. Also, you have to start at a stop/switch station. One other note: behind the red stack, there is a smaller black stack. If you turn this, you can make smoke come out of the stack. I think I remember someone suggesting a drop of cooking oil. Hope this helps!!! Hope you get it set up for Christmas!!!

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!
