What size motor and battery are needed to run a kiddie train ride weighing about 250 lbs? Answered
I have a kiddie train ride that was designed to run by charging the track in order to run the motor. I can't find the parts for it, I'm missing a transformer, and the tracks may be too corroded to conduct electricity. I would like to convert this ride to run off of a marine battery and motor using an on off switch, or timer of some sort. What size motor, and battery should i be looking for? I have read that these rides use 5 amps to get started and 3 amps while running.
