ToledoEd - I experienced the same 'Herky- Jerky' syndrome with a brand new Lionel engine that I bought a few years ago.  Initially it ran fine but within a short period of time the same problem arose.  Ultimately Mike Reagan determined that the encoder wheel was loose on the flywheel and fixed it.  Since then I've had no problems.  Consequently you may want to check this if you haven't done so already.

If the flywheel is loose on this one, it'll take a bit more work.  The flywheels are pressed on, so it would have to go back anyway.
