SOURCE: I have an HO scale

Check the engine motor and second car motor with a digital multimeter for continuity. Make sure the track is connected properly. Also probe the transformer and see if it is sending out power to the track

I have a Thomas and Friends Wooden Railway Battery-operated Rosie - I replaced the battery and the light goes on but the motor won't work. Can it be fixed? (Note: this is not a Trackmaster train)

If you can disassemble the train you may find that one of the motor wires has broken off the motor. If that is the case it could be soldered back on. If the motor is shot, it may be hopeless but once you get it out you may be surprised to to find a replacement on the internet. Post more details or a picture of the train and I can research it.

I bought a thomas engine it has 2005 Gullane (Thomas) Limited. Replaced the batteries but it still doesn't work it has a small hole on the left side top that has a drop of water (I think it is for wat

Unscrew the screw under Annie, then pull on the top part of Annie to reveal another section where more batteries go. put water in the hole on top of Thomas, not the funnel, but there's another small hole on the top of Thomas. Now Thomas will puff steam! You are lucky to have found this train, he is super fast and very unique because he puffs the steam! we have one, unfortunately my youngest son broke the chassis that connects Thomas and Annie, so it no longer works properly. You will need a dropper to put the water in Thomas.

What guage wire should I use to connect a train transformer to the O gauge lockons on the train track? thank, E.S

I have used 18ga lamp wire but you can use wire as thin as telephone wire. My rule of thumb is to use thicker wire (lower gauge number) the more motors on the train you are running. 20 or 22ga is generally used by most.

I have the Thomas and Friends Trackmaster talking Thomas train. 2 days after I bought it he stopped working. I changed the batteries and now he only talks. He wont move on or off the track at all?

I brought one a few days ago and out of the box it talked but would not move. I returned it to the store for a replacement. I noticed that the back wheels under the on and off switch have weight on them before the train will move. If the train is not sitting on the track, it will not move, That is what makes thomas stop at the station

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 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".
