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.

There are bateries all over the place in this toy. two AAs in the remote, two button bateries in the tender and also two AAs in the engine, did you do the ones in the engine?

SOURCE: remote control train won't work
The wires will have pulled off the circuit board inside.
Remove screws (force a hex driver in there) and solder wire back on.
Train surgey (geddit) is very fiddly. Have a drink first! ;-)

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...
