Hoping someone has an idea about what's going on with my MTH 249e. This is from a Christmas RTR set 11-5505-1, Link below.

When sitting still everything seems ok. Sounds, smoke fan but lousy smoke, and lights all work. Oddly the address in the remote for this loco is blank.

When moving though the loco stutters horribly both in sound and motion, and it seems to be in sync with the chuffing. I cleaned the pickups, track, checked the connection to the tender, checked the DC's switch... I'm lost. Hopefully the video shows the issue well.

Thanks
Mike

With the smoke off it still happens. With sounds off it still happens as well. Sitting still I can run through the PFA, use all sounds, etc. The chuff sounds seems to be where the stutter happens. When it stutters the lights blink with the stuttering sound.
