I'll give you 2 tips ... the left end of the longest bar goes on the 3rd pole. the shortest bar goes on the far right. Remember, the bars should "spark" when attached. If not, they are not in the correct positions. Good Luck.

I have to agree with the people who are frustrated. I play these games for the mindless entertainment value. I just want to find hidden objects. I don't have the time or the inclination to have my brains sucked out my ears every time try to play this game. Some of us aren't hard line gamers, we do have a life and play for the simple fun and this IS NOT FUN!

You don't use the plank by the waterfalls. It's to the right of the bird.

I give up. I left to come back here and I had done most of the stones on the rocks and now all my lines are gone. Why do they not save.WHY SHOULD WE HAVE TO START OVER. I have done everthing I can to get the lights back on and they just won't work. That is 2 spots that I have to do over. Not fair

Like cesse says you should have got new map right after here try this again:
Grab the piece of journal that is on the left edge of the scene.
Lower left side, grab the hammer, and place it on the plank that is on the side of the yellow train car. The plank will go into inventory, go to the waterfall.
Once you find the bolt cutters in the waterfall,place the bolt cutters over the chain on the door and a new location will appear that contains a puzzle.

It seems that no matter where I put the bars there is always one light bulb not lit. In the end I gave up and clicked "Solve" - this was no help, it just moves the bars and still leaves one light bult not lit.

Either there is a bug in the puzzle or I'm missing something obvious, which is it?

The solve button will only solve one step at a time. If you hit it again, it will solve another piece.

I gave up in the end, the solve button wasn't helping, but the link posted by gail50111 helped

I know I cheated but it was getting late and I wanted to get the puzzle done before going to bed.

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it

Why can't their be a way to bypass mini-games to go on. I can't find anywhere to put the plank in the abandaned train mini game. Help! I'm too old to spend my life trying to figure out some of these puzzles!

Hi Rosebud- the plank does not go in the train. You use it to cross the ravine on the next page, i think.

Count me in as stuck. I thought the plank was a problem but I think maybe people are not putting it in the right place because they are trying to span the large waterfall. You want to put the plank onto the land at about the six o'clock position or thereabouts, if viewing the screen as a clock face. You are only going from the near foreground almost straight back. You are not trying to span the waterfall that occupies the left half, approximately, of the screen. Maybe that will help. I, too, kept my eye on the large waterfall when all I had to do was span the ditch in front of me.

Now I am stuck with the darn lights. I can get all but one on, too, but the answer does not seem to be logical. If I get a certain number of lights to glow, move the wires or whatever they are, to another position and back, I don't necessarily end up with the same number of lights glowing as I had previously even though the wires are back in the same position. Either that or I am going crazy, which right about now is a definite possibility, Maybe I will hit the New Years Eve bubbly instead of worrying about puzzles. I am about to tear my hair out! If someone figures it out, please take pity on the rest of us.

I do not know what any of you are talking about. I am at the generator and there is not waterfall to go to. Now what. Come on I need my hand held here and guide me to the right place.
