I have a 3 rail version of the 3rd Rail Virginian EL2B. I was running with about 30 various hoppers behind. One unit started stuttering and quit running, its getting power but the drive line (somewhat visible) isn't turning. I reversed to get away from the table edge and see what would happen and both units ran as normal in reverse. My units have at most 3 hours run time.
I know of a two rail version that has had the same problem. This unit has maybe 5 hours run time.
Anyone else experiencing a drive train issue similar?
@sdmann have you heard of any drive issues? Any suggestions? I understand getting the shells off is a bear.
