Hello, Jo -

From information I have found on other websites, apparently the Erbauer brand of tools are made by ScrewFix.

I found a ScrewFix Community Forum online with questions about Erbauer replacement parts. This is the link to the forum:
https://community.screwfix.com/threads/erbauer-replacement-parts.95804/
Read the questions and comments on both pages.

From that information it seems that ScrewFix and Erbauer provide no replacement parts.

Through the eBay resolution process you can probably have your purchase price refunded.

Is this a baby blanket that you need to piece together? If so post a picture and maybe I can help. But otherwise I am not sure what kind of help you are asking for.

Is the transformer getting hot? Sounds like there might be a short circuit in the system. You'd need to put an ohm meter across the tracks (or a Digital Multimeter (DMM) set to ohms) to verify the short and then look around for some electrical path between the tracks.

You should switch to a size or two smaller needle when you switch yarns.

There are different versions of the Berkshire 2-8-4 locomotive that comes with these sets and the process of activating chuff sound on them varies depending on which version of locomotive you have.So in order to help you I need to know which one it is. Do you have the model number of your set?

I assume that you are talking about a narrow ledge, 15ft long. I don't think you would have a problem getting a train to go from one end to the other and then back up to its starting position. There are electronic circuits that do this. Had one for a Christmas trolley that ran through the town under the tree that did that.

Remove the train from the track. use a multimeter to check the polarity along the length of the track. (Note POLARITY, not voltage). Depending on your setup there could be a section where the polarity is opposite in this section. Here the train will want to go backwards, and at the changeover point it will stop. If you just have a big circle with only one connection to the track then you have a real mystery.

The 1026 has a bakelite shell. It is held in place by two tabs that snap over the metal frame. The shell is very fragile. However if you aren't a qualified tech with this sort of thing this tranformer is very inexpensive, rather than take a chance, I would just dump it. You can usually find them at shows for about five bucks.
