Hi, was able to get the 4-4-2 running great. It was the roller pickups that were not rolling but sliding on the power rail.
I tested the loco on the test bench and when voltage applied it ran with no hesitation. I ran my fingers over the roller
pickups and saw they were stuck. I sprayed contact cleaner on both and away it went. Now all I need to replace is the
microswitch that is broken.
