I just purchased a BLI paragon2 Dreyfuss Hudson (DCC) at a train show, it is hard to find and it was a steal, but sadly that seemed to reflect in the engine's running ability, it seems mint otherwise , but upon placing it on the track (DC) and turning on the power, all i hear is a repetitive clicking sound from under the shell, and after a few seconds, the sound and lights turn on, but the locomotive will not move. The engine is dual mode DC/DCC compatible

There seems to be no pickup issues, and no issue i can tell with the harness from the tender, so the clicking leads me to believe the motor is not working right or something is up with the mechanism itself, but not the electrical pickup, any suggestions? It's such a lovely and rare engine and i want to add it to my running fleet more than anything
