I am new to this world and have a
GE AC4400Cw the drive wheel make
sound like they are dry. ? How and
what type of oil would I use.
Smart move, Ron! That 102 is hands down superior to grease because as you say, it's "sticky"Welcome to MTF, lonewolfwalker, glad you're here.
The reason to use oil specially made for today's loco's is the formula will not disturb the plastic gears.
Regular oil will eat away at plastic, destroying your gears.
I myself use LaBelle 102. I found it sticky enough to adhere to the gears while the trains are running.
No oily tracks to clean.
Make sure you wipe up as much excess as possible, that helps also.
