Operating and Servicing

Whether you have just rescued an old Trix train set from the attic, or bought one from a toy collectors' fair, you might not know how to wire it up or get it running reliably. Hopefully, the information here will help get you started.

If you would like information that is not featured here, please send an email, as I might have the original Trix instruction sheet.
