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

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

Interesting, thanks. I saw a video on one of the layout threads around here of someone operating an MPC hudson - no audible buzz. Perhaps they turned the e-unit off, I will have to test.

You use motor oil for model trains? Honestly I've never thought of that. Does it make a difference which one I pick? And I've seen the Red 'N' Tacky grease mentioned around here but forgot about that - thanks for reminding me!

What transformer are you using?

I am using a GW-180, purchased new last year. Runs other conventional locos fine (eg, NYC L3a #3000 / 6-18009, etc.)
