Question about New Bright Toys

Open Question

I have a New Bright toy train model # 1170. I believe it was manufactured in 1987 or 88. I was wondering what type of batteries it uses in the coal cart and in the train station.

SOURCE: Need replacement track for train set

is there a way to make wooden tracks for this inflatable to sit . all you would have to do is measure the distance between the wheels and the cut the lumber and screw together. i would use 2 x 4 x 8 feet long . and cut the braces just the right lenght so the train would sit on the track. you could even paint the rails gray or silver and the braces black to off set the colors of the train it self .

SOURCE: New Bright Model #183 - how do I make the train

This train set is very particular and getting it to work each Christmas is a family tradition in frustration. First you must make sure that all the pieces of track are connected properly and that the track is perfectly symmetrical and flat. We double-check the battery positions every year and find one in wrong. There are + and - signs, but they're hard to see; use a flashlight. There is a black toggle switch below and behind the red stack that toggles forward (to make the train go forward) and backwards (reverse); straight out perpendicular to the train is the "stop" position. Also, you have to start at a stop/switch station. One other note: behind the red stack, there is a smaller black stack. If you turn this, you can make smoke come out of the stack. I think I remember someone suggesting a drop of cooking oil. Hope this helps!!! Hope you get it set up for Christmas!!!

I have a great American express smoking engine train by new bright. The train will not start, we are not sure where the on off switch is. Please help!


Ours is a really old model, but the on/off button is located on the second car (coal car) towards the very front. It's red on our set. I am looking for help on the smoke part. I can't remember what we're supposed to use for that.

I have a holiday train No. 181 which did not come with instructions. I can not locate where the batteries go can you send me instructions?


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...

I bought this from a friend, and now I see there is no transformer..:( will it run without it?


The battery pack is in the coal tender. The top of the tender lifts off pretty simply. It requires six C batteries. You connect the tender to the locomotive via a power cord, which should be obvious. If it's not, perhaps the cord has been severed.
