    Weird.
    I let it sit overnight and it seems to be OK now.
    It still has a little motor whine but that high pitched screetching that sounded like fingernails on a chalkboard is gone.

    I guess it just had to sit and soak up it's oil bath. :?

    I got the covers off and oiled the gears. I didn't notice any rubbing on the bottoms of the covers but I wasn't really looking last night either.

    And as I posted in my last post, it seems to be fine now.
    Strange little engine.


    A big thanks to everyone for their input! :thumb:

    I could have just given the loco to the dog and let her chew it up as well. :D
