Thomas Ride On Train - Replacing the battery
These are some common tools used to work on this device. You might not need every tool for every procedure.
An electric train suitable for 1 year plus.
This train has a 6v lead acid battery and selection of controls in the console. It is charged from a connector at the rear of the train.
You can access the battery compartment with a cross head screwdriver to open the seat.
To access the rest of the circuit and components requires you to turn the train upside down and remove the screws
Where do I plugin the charger ¶
There is a socket on the rear of the train, dependant on the age of the train this could be of different types. See the System guide for details.
Where can I get spares ¶
You can buy a spare battery or charger at Hedstrom Battery - Product Code: THO2284K9
They also stock a charger but note that there is an old style and new style connector for the charger.
The wheels slip on the track ¶
Make sure the track is dry and free from grass or leaves. Try to get the driver to lean back a bit so that their weight is on the rubberised driving wheels. Perhaps add some dry sand to the track to provide more grip.
