Good question!I appreciate this is a basic question, but what did you do for ‘servicing’? I’ve got a similar railbus that has been sitting in a box for ages and soon will be coming out to play.
all of the following steps are done from underneath the bus
WORD OF WARNING, these rail buses are fitted with a spring and ball bearing at the end of each gearbox, and they will ping off if you open the gearbox to re-grease, I usually take these apart in a sealed box.
basically i clean up the wheels and contacts,
take off the middle motor cover and remove the motor to check contacts and driveshafts
the wheels need to be removed to open the gearbox, this is where the springs could escape, add a little grease to the gears if needed and clean up the carbon brushed if needed
re assemble , make sure any wires do not get pinched in casings, and should be good to go!
hope this helps
