It could be the grease that was applied at the factory has dried up like plaster and locking the wheels. I had that a few times on Williams trains that I bought used. To clean out the dry hardened grease I use plastic compatible oil like Moble 1. Apply a few drops all over and around the gears and allow it to soak in you can carefully try turning the wheels and apply more oil. Once the wheels are free clean out the old grease with Q Tips. I use CRC contact cleaner which is plastic compatible and spray it into  the gear area to clean out the residue. When you're finished lube the gears with Labelle 106 grease and oil sparing around all the shafts and axles. It can be messy so its best to have the parts on rags or a old bath towel while cleaning.  Be sure the motor is seated properly when reassembling.
