i think what one of the others hinted at, carpet fibre, may be the cause. cleaning ang lubing the gears and track won't help if the wheels can't physically turn due to fibres wrapped around the axle ends. these may not be apparent without removing the axles, but the drag they cause can slow the train down.

another possibility is a weak or damaged motor from overheating.

Thank you and this is the kit I now have. Train is only used at Christmas and nowhere near tree. It is on a berber carpet with no fuss and cleaned with all proper bachman materials. I have a cd on it as well. But no trouble shooting shooting. This is it`s 3rd year. and thanks for tips. It is G scale.
