The original sealed battery which came with this offers only short running time and, by now, any still around will probably be past its best From Direct Service you should be able to buy a new battery holder which takes four AA batteries and you can use this with either rechargeable or non-rechargeable batteries. The former are the better ones to use. The part number for the battery holder, certainly in Europe, is 7829. All you then need is a battery charger available from many sources.

This is better: http://playmobil.scene7.com/is/content/Playmobil/7829pdf.pdf It works with the 4035 train. The old charger you are seeking was made for the old nicad batteries which often don't hold much of a charge in their old age. I think the 7829 battery holder is still available from Playmobil UK and Playmobil Germany inexpensively.

We're on the same wavelength, -bbbb.
I started replying before your reply was posted. You beat me to it. I have an old nicad battery and charger and I'm contemplating opening it up and replacing the cells. I wonder how that old charger would affect NiMH cells.

Ah, I understand. With some forums I'm on, if you post a reply and someone else has replied since the post you're replying to, you get a warning message.

But, at least if there's two people giving very similar answers, you know it's a good one

Playmobil USA does not have it. They said they have not had it for a long time and do not expect to get it. Your best bet is to find a friend or relative in the UK or Germany to get one for you, or you can try to buy one on an online auction site where it may cost a lot more than getting it directly from playmobil (UK or Germany). Playmobil direct service in other countries may also have it, but I have not checked.

The battery pack is only 4.8v, so you can use a battery pack of that voltage, And just wire it in, obviously the advantage is that the grey plastic one slots right in

And postage to the USA isnt that bad, I recently posted a 500g parcel to Canada for £14

I imagine 3 would be a better deal with postage. it doesn't hurt to have extra. I had Walt send me a couple when I only needed one, and then I eventually needed the second one. Plan ahead.
