..sound is less "mechanical"-sounding (like gears grating together) and sounds more like an intense electrical buzz.

That would be the electromagnetic reverse unit and this is normal operation.

do you have recommendations for oil and grease? I'm assuming the Lionel Maintenance kits aren't up to the job of maintaining internals. Thanks again for your input.

I use Mobil 1 oil and Lucas Red 'N' Tacky #2 grease(replacing "Lubricant") for trains.
