    Thanks for replying. I am struggling to find the receipt, will keep looking.

    Could it be repaired? If so where is the best/cheapest place?

    Can you recommend anyone and how much should I expect to pay?

    Sorry for all the questions and thanks for the advice.

    Not the best start to xmas, couldn't get my son's virgin pendolino train set to work.

    So heres the problem:
    - lights come on but no movement, makes a slight humming noise but no movement.
    - after a short period trying to get the train to move the controller cuts out. Wait a few minutes and it comes back on.
    - double and triple checked all the joints and connections.
    - we also bought an old second hand flying scotsman, when i put that on the track it works, although the controller does very occasionally cut out.

    Could this be a problem with the trainer or the controller. BTW im a complete novice at this!

    Any help would be much appreciated.
