Lionel postwar 736 Berkshire wheels locked up

I was running my 736 Bershire locomotive when it suddenly stopped. I picked it up to see what was the matter and the driver wheels were extremely stiff, even when I turned them manually by hand. I'd appreciate it if someone could give me an easy solution to fix it myself (if there is one). Thank you.

First off, look for crap in the gears, that's a common issue. Check to see of one of the rods came loose and is jamming up the works.
