good morning everyone 
 i have a Lionel R27 subway set and I'm having a problem with it, when the engine goes in reverse it does not run smooth it jumps but it works perfectly fine in forward, does anyone have an idea of what the problem is ? thank you 

This is 62street next stop 71st Stand clear of the closing doors

I checked the rubber is there intact
I ended up  taking apart the the subway and when i put back together and then it worked fine maybe something wasn't placed right or but it works great now thank you for the advice thou

Definitely sounds like a foreign object got caught between the gears. I used to run my R27 set around the holidays on a layout that used the white cotton mats (available at craft stores) for a snowy base. Needless to say the fluffy cotton would shed and was ingested by the power unit's gears. If caught in time I was able to dislodge the jam by reversing directions, but in most cases I had to take the unit apart and clear the jam manually.
