Use a tiny amount of light weight oil (sewing machine oil will work) on the outsides of the motor shaft,., Use a tooth pick to apply. Of cours you'll need to remove the plastic body first. Another suggestion if that doesn't take care of the noise is to place a tiny bit of vasoline on the gears that are exposed when you take the plastic boy off. While your doing that you may want to place some vasoline on the gears inside the driving truck or trucks (dual drive). Pay attention when removing the plastic bottom covers from the truck. Use a small screw driver to pry one end of that cover loose and the other becomes loose and then remove to expose the gears.

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!!!

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...

Check the engine and transformer by taking the two wires from the transformer and, while holding the engine upside down put on wire against one side wheels and the other wire on the other sides wheels...that will tell you if the engine is at fault.

I would start by making sure all the connectors on the track are clean and locked together firmly.Wipe off track rails and all electrical connections with clean soft cloth such as a wash rag.Try to not touch electrical connections with bare hands as even small amounts of body oils or hand lotions can interfere with good connections. Check hook ups from transformer to track. Clean electrical pick up points on engine with pencil eraser and soft rag, you can use eraser to clean track surface also.
Hope this is helpful and have a good new year. Thanks
