Repairing TNA Trains
#1
Hi everyone, 
I have these 3 TNA Engines which I would love to repair. I have tried getting all 3 to work but I am not as skilled with soldering as I thought nor do I have the time to sit down with them for a few hours. Would anyone here be willing to fix them on commission? 
I have the following:
TNA (Japanese) Plarail Henry
TNA (American?) MRR James
TNA (British) MRR Thomas

I've attached a photo of the 3. They have all their pieces aside from some bad connectors which broke off due to corrosion. 
If anyone is interested in doing the commission and has an offer or knows anyone they could refer me to, or just any suggestions overall, anything is appreciated. 
Thanks for reading, 
Joe

I LOVE repairing trains but I've never repaired a TNA before and wouldn't want to risk breaking yours, unless you're okay with that risk then I'd be happy too.
I collect mostly HiT and other brands from 1992-2014

Let me think on this and get back to you. I'd really like to get these fixed but I don't have many spare parts in case something breaks/ needs to be replaced.

I watched a video on how to fix TNA engines and it appears to just be soldering wires, I thought it would be more complex than that, that's why I thought I would break something.

This is the James. the reason why I said "American?" is because I haven't heard it run to know if it is for sure, but I do suspect it is. But let me know if I am incorrect.

@fauxwheeldrive7 I see. The orange wire is not the original one. The TNA have only Red blue for Japanese, Black Red for British and Green Red is American. But in this case it possible to be British or American one if you say it’s motor road & rail.

I'm afraid I'm not the most knowledgeable when it comes to this so could you elaborate on what exactly I am looking at here? Thanks

I think what Super is trying to say is the wire appears to be squished, most likely due to being sealed in between two pieces of plastic which I'm pretty sure can cut the circulation of the electricity going to the motor.

Excactly what Splodge says. The strands inside the covering of the wire could also been separated. If you look closely to the left of the squashed wire there looks to be a cut. And there looks to be a pile of corrosion on the battery contact at the resistor too. Is this the one where the contact has also broken off in the battery compartment? Don't know if you know it but you can click on the picture to get a closer view and then click it again for a super close up.

Something doesn't look quite right, the red wire seams to have been replaced at some point as usually you tend to get a more semitransparent insulation on the wires and this one is very opaque, however I'm not sure if this is true on non Japanese locos. I think replacing it would be a good idea, how ever before that you could use a piece of wire to join the two sides as a test to see if that's the problem
