Question about New Bright 384 Holiday Express Animated Electric Train Set

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 train still comes off the track. Do they have replaceable tracks for sale somewhere?

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.

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.

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/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 Newbright Musical Holiday Station Electric Animated set No. 385. Everyt car on the train lights up but we can't get the train to move or take any of the commands from the control panel. What could...


Check to make sure you have the large plug from the tender car to the loco plugged in correctly and secure. The tender car supplies power to the loco and if that cable is not connected the train will not run.

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. :-( ....

No power to track and/or train. Power to Holiday Express Train


Check the power circuit that goes to the track if there is an open circuit, open circuit means, break or cut line that can not flow the current going to the track to give a power to the train, ok.

New Bright Holiday Express Animated Train - figures do not move


Make sure you the wheels on the cars are actually rolling and not sliding (being drug down the track) Most of the animation is down mechanically as the set moves.
