Besides engineer for loco's cab, what other figure was in this set?
Is a drawing/diagram showing oiling and lubrication points available anywhere?.
How do you get to motor drive/worm gears for lubricating?
Did similar but later 4-6-0's locos in Big Haulers series have larger, more powerful motors for pulling more cars?
Was this set #90024 in Bachmann's catalog during any year(s) other than 1995?

Thanks forum readers for any answers you can offer to any of these questions.

Your LIberty Bell Limited was in the catalog from 1995 to 1998

There was a fireman Figure with a shovel in addition to the engineer
I believe the oiling instruction were in the comic  book stye instruction manual.  One drop of light oil on the axle ends and all pivot points and sliding point on the running gear
To get to the gears for greasing you must turn the loco and loosen the screws to lift up the bottom plate.
Your locomotive has the version 3 chassis, which was not known as a robust version.  Later versions had improved Gears.  The version 5 Chassis has been out since 2000 and is a great chassis, I routinely pull ten cars with it. The Version 5 chassis also has a lubrication port for greasing the gears.  New for 2011 but not yet out is the Version 6 chassis which will have all metal gears.

Hope this helps.
