Question about Seth Thomas Thomas & Friends Battery-Powered Salty Train Toy

Open Question

My son has a battery powered Thomas Train set. We bought "Salty" and it comes w/ an attached transport cart but we have NO idea how to change the battery. The extra cart has a place to change batteries but it only seems to be related to voice activation and not actual movement of Salty. Please help!

Hi

Have you tried keep pressing the right hand button down. When you press the button down and hold the press, then the sounds are finished, the trains starts driving. When you release the button the train stops at once.

I can't seem to figure out how to change the batteries in my talking salty trackmaster toy. I accidently got rid of the instructions


My son wanted this for Christmas but we went with a couple more affordable sets. he did get others though and they dont change batteries like most of the Thomas and friends. Flip him upside down, locate all screws...find one or two that have and arrow around the screw...those are the ones you take out to put the batteries in.

I through away directions by mistake. How do I put the battery in Percy. Thanks.


My child has a similar train but it is a Thomas instead of a Percy. There is probably a screw on the bottom. My son's train has three screws and the one in the middle (+) is the one that opens the train so I can put a battery in it.

How do you replace the batteries in James the train?


James the train has a tender attached to him. On top of the tender there is a black plastic piece that looks like coal. Slide the black plastic piece towards you and you will see the battery underneath it.

I cannot promise that this is the problem, but this is where mine was broken, and you may be able to fix yours this way.

I was able to remove the plastic around the tender and access the motor. Using alligator clips, I was able to connect the battery directly to the motor, bypassing the circuit board. The motor functioned, therefore the only component that seemed to be defective was the circuit board, located behind the speaker in the engine unit.

As far as I know, the only place to buy a replacement circuit board is from www.tigerimports.com. Search for part number MEVA0024. Cost is around $15 + shipping (around $6 or so).

I should be receiving this part by the end of the week and will report if it fixed the problem.

Thanks for using Fixya. If I didn't help your situation, please DO NOT label this advise as "inappropriate".
