Hey all,

I've had an Oliver loco for months now but its never been out of the packaging.
I just went to go run it on some track to test it out with a DC controller.
The controller was set to 0 power but it was plugged in.
The second I put Oliver down on the tracks his motor started making loud noises and the loco started to slowly stutter move backwards.
Again the controller was just plugged in and no power was applied to move the loco either way.
Any thoughts what might be causing this?

What kind of controller are you using Mr. Striker?  I've had a similar issue with large scale models using Bachmann's standard 1amp power supply, but the issues you describe sound a little more like your power is alternating current (AC) rather than direct current (DC).  Please elaborate a little more.
