Question about New Bright 384 Holiday Express Animated Electric Train Set

Open Question

I have the pre-2001 G scale new bright train track. several pieces are damaged. The new sG style track is uncompatable. Can I adapt the new g style track to thee-2001 style, which is not avalable anymore? Otherwise I would to buy 20 pieces of the new track available today to keep using the train. I would also have to buy a new track clip to fit the newer track. This gets expensive.

What scale is this train set? I mean 1:24, 1:22.5, etc.


depends what the railway is representing. It matters, for example, whether you are in the US or Europe.
I recommend that you contact the company to get an unambiguous answer
Contact New Bright
Further reading on G-gauge can be found here
scale Wikipedia the free encyclopedia from which you will understand why it is not straight forward to answer your question with information available. In the US, the article says,
" 'Gauge One' scaled at 1:32 (3/8" to the foot) used to model standard gauge trains of 4 ft 8 1?2 in (1,435 mm) standard gauge gauge."
hope this helps (a bit)

Check the connection from the transformer to the track, and that all the track is well connected. Make sure nothing is touching both tracks, shorting them out.

Holiday express animated train set no.387 was given to me and I have not instructions or track lay-out? HELP


The track layout is simple enough,there are 12 straight peice of tracks and 12 curved tracks. So you can make it one big circle and not use the straight tracks or add 1-6 on each sidewith straight track and you'll have a long oval. Or have 1-4 on each side then add 1-4 after the third curved track of each circlular end to have a big type oval style.

Some lites lite up right when you push the power switch on and the remaining lights will work once the train is in motion.

Hi having trouble with our new bright musical holiday station electric animated train set...very frustrating as one of the train tracks broke off a little part so no matter what my husband tries to do the...


Yes, additional track is available from several places, such as Hobbylinc.com, and TowerHobbies.com. At this time, just after Christmas, they are out of stock, however. Walthers.com 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.

We are having difficulty turning on our New Bright Holiday Express Animated Train set. Husband and I have been trying to figure this out for our eager 2 little boys. The remote seems to turn (red light)...


Here are a couple of resources from New Bright:
http://www.newbright.com/public/electric-train-faq

http://www.newbright.com/images/Manuals/384%20ws%20manual.pdf

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.

I have a new bright animated holiday train from a garage sale and I think I am missing a power cord


You should have a 3 pieces to provide power....

1. A track connector box. Looks like a "T". It slips under the track to make the track power connection. The transformer plugs into it (2 pin Molex type connector) and the command console (has an RJ11 telephone jack type connector on it)

2. A large square transformer. One end plugs into the wall and the other into the track connetor box.

3. The Command Console. Has the on/off button, forward, reverse, mute, sounds and speed contol on it .. has a connector that looks like a telephone plug.

Unfortunately... DO NOT look to New Bright for missing or non working parts. New Bright does not offer repair or replacement parts for thier products. :-( ....

I have power to the track and the controller, but not the train.


I assume you have the Treetop Tender car on the track? The treetop tender is car that makes the electrical connection between the track and the train.

1. Use a volt meter across the track. You should have about 10.5VDC on the track (anywhere on the track)
2. Even without the Loco on the track, the Treetop Tender should light up if you have power to the track. If you have power and the tender does not light. Check the brushes located between the wheels on the tender. These are the motor brushes that pick up the current from the track for the train set. Make sure they are contacting the track.
3. Add the loco to the track and plug in the large black plug from the tender to the loco. Turn on the power and press forward. The train should start rolling.

Try all the functions, bells, ho ho ho, all aboard etc ..

Add one car at a time and make sure that each one lights up before moving on to the next.
