Maintenance

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m a new member who has just acquired his first loco. It’s a Bachmann product made some years ago but stored in its box and never run.  Should it be oiled or checked over prior to being run? The only paperwork in the box is a parts diagram- there are no instructions. Help and guidance most welcome. Thanks Steve

Welcome Steve.

 

I would add oil to the axles to ensure they are lubricated at the bearings (on all wheels especially on the drivers).  I'd also add oil on all the side rods.  Outside of that you should be good.
