I purchased parts 8879+8884+88000+88002 to power the new Winter Holiday Train. Fresh out of the package the remote controller 8879 does not make contact with the positive end of the battery.
Thanks to this post, I was able to make an adjustment to the controller so that contact could be made saving me a lot of time and headache. Thank you for taking the time to answer questions. Now, was there an easy way to get the positive contacts to stick out further?
