Assemble everything, power up and engine doesn't run
on December 17, 2013
I read all the good reviews on this train set. Although, the individual units are very well detailed and each carriage have some heft to it. Hook up the tracks carefully aligning the pins and put the engine on the track, plug in the power supply to wall outlet. The red PWS indicator light came on and start ramp up the dial and train won't move; no activity at all... not even humming noise to let me know it's getting power. I disassemble the tracks and redo it again, same thing... no response when power on. Ah.... maybe I just got a lemon or bad one from factory but leaves bad taste in my mouth buying online from Amazon. I was hoping to save some money buying online vs local hobby shop which cost easily 40-50$ more.
Again, maybe I just got unlucky but I can't give it more than 1 star since it didn't even run out of the box. It looks very well constructed but what good is train set that don't run, right.
