I set up a Christmas yard display and had the Annie pulling 4 cars. I left it alone for a few minutes and came back to find the cars laying on their side with the engine at the BACK, still on the track. Smoke was coming out from under the Annie and it smelled like burnt electrical wires. Of course it no longer runs.

Any ideas? What's it going to cost to fix this?

I bought this off of eBay last week and it ran like a champ. It was brand new with a warranty card, but it was taken out of a set.

Thanks for the help,

Bill

Thanks guys, I'll send it back to Backmann. I found another new one on eBay last night for $80 so I picked her up so that I can still run my Christmas layout.

I like the idea of a fuse. It seems like a simple idea.
