Well...looks like I have a new static display for my rail yard.  No headlight, tender contacts cleaned and double checked with ohm meter and all good.  Strips inside tender are solid and in good shape.  I exposed the motor armature in the engine and it doesn't budge.  I am no going to try and take the engine apart.  It doesn't look like it would be easy to do without breaking off all the little details.  Fortunately the guy I got it from said "no cost if I can't get it to run".  I like it so much I think I may get a new model for my collection.  Thanks for all the help and advice.  It was all good, and timely, even if I couldn't get the loco/tender up and running.

What a great description.  Thanks a lot.  I will let you know how it comes out. I had no idea the tender was part of the drive system.

I recently received one of these nicely detailed n scale steam locomotives in great shape except it does not run.  I would like to take it apart and clean it and check the motor connections but cannot find any documents online that show any details concerning this locomotive.  I expect it has been around for a while.  I know that the last time it ran was about 5 years ago.  Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.  If I can't get it running it will make a nice static display on my layout.  thanks in advance.
