Hello, all

I am hoping someone can help me here.

My daughter loved our recent Polar Express ride, and I thought she might like it if I got my Tyco Chattanooga Choo Choo train from boyhood running around our tree this year .

But as you can see in the photo, two of the wires on my engine have come loose. I can find zero wiring do iagrzms online.

Can anyone give me hints as to which wire I should solder where? I suspect the black one goes into the clip behind the motor and the red one goes to the empty spot on the motor. But I could have that backwards, or even have it completely wrong.

These trains used to be everywhere back in the 70s. Anyone still have a working version (or enough electrical knowledge) to help?

Thank you!

Hi Allen,

I sold my Chattanooga set, otherwise, I'd pop the shell and show you a pic. However, I did find this online. Hope it helps:

Hi Allen,

Glad to assist. Hope to see a pic or two of the engine running around your x-mas tree.

Have a Merry Christmas!
