As always i enjoy sharing the work I'm doing on various engines, this time it's the Lionel Acela. This particular one runs very well it just was in need of new traction tires. As you will see in the pictures below changing the traction tires isn't for a novice, in my opinion it should be done by Lionel or a qualified tech. Even though it's quite a task, i enjoyed every minute of it. To change these tires there's many steps and a lot of very very small parts that must be disassembled. Also you will see in some of the photos the inner workings of this engine.
Enjoy, and thanks for looking, Alex
