Slow as it has been. progress is now gaining some ground. Here are some initial pictures from 2017.
Sorry, I missed this post earlier.I looked at Jeff's site and found the 260E-45 MTH repro. Are you aware of anything else? I found that by going through his picture library.

I have the same problem with the binding gears on a 248 - rough and locks upi every revolution.. The prior owner "restored" the loco but botched the wheel replacement. There's an obvious wobble in one of the geared wheels. Either he pressed the wheel on an angle or he bent the axle.The new gears have been a problem. They bind up. I have worked on the teeth and slowly gotten them to work 360. Now I have the motor running. Rewire is next. The shell is painted and ready for parts but the frame still needs the front part ordered.
