I was wondering what kinda off maintenance do you guys do on the trains themselves.
here is the issue... my train is relatively new..... it seems like the smoothness of the operation is not so smooth now.... the wheels act as if they are peeling out on the rails..... I see one rubber "o" ring on only one wheel... no indication that there should be any more.....ran great and then started this.... runs backwards... but not forward..... ? any clues.....

It is a Mantua

I tear down and lube all my locos when I get them...even new ones...to make sure they start off on the right foot. Factory lube jobs tend to go to either extreme---too little or too much lube---and so it's a good habit to get into from the start anyway.
