Does sound like an issue with the charging port. Have you tried a new charger and cleaned the charging port on the device to make sure? The S3's are known to have charging port issues so this is not surprising, but unfortunately with this model it does require soldering and not an easy DIY job.

As a person who repairs Lionel Trains, I didn't even think to check if the port was dirty! Thank you!
