all toys like these and many other devices regularly have different sized chargers, but the current running through them is the same, if you can find something that fits into the charger, it will work. additionally, you could go to any electronics store and buy a universal charger, which comes with voltage changers and different heads to fit all voltage requirements, and all plug size requirements.

i want to know where to buy a charger fo rmy new bright 19.2v nicd battery pack

New Bright... | Answered on Mar 24, 2011

I think I'd get one of those chargers that will fit anything- select the right plug and voltage, you're in.

eBay is where I'd check first.

Here are a couple of resources from New Bright:

There is no On/Off switch on the train. Power goes from wall plug to transformer, then from transformer to track clip, which must be attached to the track. A control line goes from the track clip to the controller. Mine has a green light just above the red On/Off button that will come on even if the engine and tender are not on the track. The tender does all the work, and must be connected to the engine and on the track. There are four sliding contacts between the tender wheels that provide contact with the track.

Yes, additional track is available from several places, such as, and At this time, just after Christmas, they are out of stock, however. has them in stock (1-4-2011). You can find extra track on sale on eBay, as well. Be sure to get the track with the brass covers, as New Bright sells battery powered trains that use bare plastic track, which will not work with the 384. A Google search will turn up more sources.

The batteries go in the first car following the lokomotive, the coal tender. There is a small black knob with a ****. Turn it, and it will open the top part, so you can put the batteries in. This train set will not take a rechargeable battery. Bummer...

they might be dischared or low charged one.

New Bright 116... | Answered on Dec 30, 2010

This is usually caused by either the batteries not fully charged in the remote or the vehicle. Make sure you have fresh batteries in both the vehicle and remote.
