I found what the problem is.  The sprocket is loose.  Can this be glued to the flywheel.  The
flywheel is not loose.

He said it looked like no or little wear.  I really should have ask some questions.

well it happened to me.  I seldom buy anything on ebay.  I bid on a spectrum 2-8-0 used and my low bid won.  Well I found out why.  I have seen this before.  Runs slow making noise and the motor sounds like it is racing.  I guess I will take it apart and see what I find.

I have found that Talgo and body mounted couplers don't work well together.   The longer the car the greater the problem.

The Santa Fe early 3100's would be a nice locomotive for a small layout.  I think they had 57 inch drivers.  The first group had high headlight. The next group had the center headlight.

Mantua steam locomotive were great 40 years ago.  How ever Tyco turned most of those into poor locomotives.  I never cared for mantua f units. I do have a few cars that I reworked.  They were given to me.

I was just reading another post and found the answer.  ) Very Important: The loco will run backwards. To correct this program CV 29 to a value of 7.

I like big steam, but we need to face the facts.  Like the prototype, many railroad never had anything bigger than a 2-8-2.  The Santa Fe was large railroad with only 100 or so 4-8-4s, 2 -10-4s and large 4-6-4s.   A large part of the Santa Fe never saw any of these locomotives.  Most of us will never have a layout big enought to run big steam  with 100 car trains.  What most modelers need is mid size steam.  A good 2-6-2, 0-6-0, 2-8-2 or 4-6-2.

I have been in HO 60 years.  I have seen alot of changes.  I have seen Bachmann go from junk to great, and other companies die.  The only one that I can think of that is still going is Walthers.  Also Model Railroader Mag.

The Rix rail-it, They work very well if you h ave a lot of cars to put on the layout or you can't see good.  As far as the Rix magnetic uncoupler tool work on plactic cars.  Cars with steel in them, if you are not careful you can derail the cars.  There are ther tool that I like better.
