The main drive gear could be dry. They are a pain to get to. They are under the electronics if I recall. This is for P3.

thanks Steve,

 I was really hoping to not have to take apart a brand new engine, but I would really like to occasional run faster than 35 smph.  And it is a ps3

Well it was a pain to get to.  The gears had a minimum amount of lube so I added some grease.  It still makes way too much noise as far as I am concerned.  There is no bottom plate under the gears to form an actual gearbox. I think that may be why it sounds so loud.

Well, it may be noisy but it sure looks good...!

One day an engineer calls the dispatcher and asks him for the time. The dispatcher responds by asking him what road he works for… The engineer is a little upset and snaps “What difference does that make?”
“Well”, the dispatcher drawls, “if you work for the BN it’s 2 pm;
if you work for the UP it is 1400;
if you work for the NFS the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 2; and
if you work for Amtrak it’s Tuesday!”
