Have a 20-20343 PS3 KCS E6 locomotive. It was running fine, then suddenly jumped to almost max speed, I lowered the speed to a more normal pace and then shut it down. Now it starts up but will not move at all, it just sits. Tries to move forward or backward but will not, It is like something is holding it back. I checked to see if a tire had come off and was jammed somewhere but found nothing. I reset the connections between the A_B_A units but that changed nothing. This engine has been running fine for the past several weeks.
All sounds work, smoke works, lights work, coupler slack works. I reset the engine (features and total). That did not work. I deleted engine and added it back which did work. It starts up with all sounds, horn and bell work, smoke works, lights work, coupler slack works but it will not move. If I pick up the engine slightly, the wheels will turn and it then sounds like it is operating correctly but when it is on the track, it tries to start in a very jerky fashion but will not move more than about an inch.
I am on version 6 of DCS.
I have tried everything I can think of without success. Could the tach tape have come loose? I did not check that. Appreciate any thoughts. Clearly, I need help
