I picked up a Keystone set for a crazy low bid on ebay which included 40 feet of track and Engine with tender and 4 other cars for 100 dollars.I recieved it yesterday the previous owner stated it had less the 2 hours of run time on the engine.I was suprised to see it really had no signs of wear on the wheels and the sound tender is way better than a stock bachmann. I ran it very slowly for 20 minutes without a load it runs but it squeeks very lightly and I would like to properly lube it. So if anyone has experience with this engine please let me know. I am always grateful for any tips so thank you ahead of time.My wife is not impressed she likes Diesels but I still like the old steam type engines they were the most advanced engines of their time and had a lot of style put into their design I have posted this in the model form got only one response from person telling me to go to tips page for bachmann these are of a different design I think its called a mogel 2 guide wheels in front and 2 in back not like a bachmann 10 wheeler ,I read georges tips pages on it and can lube one in my sleep now.

The general tips and techniques transfer across all makes and models. Biggest trouble I have is with engines with the round spring loaded wheel brushes (Lionel especially)... I generally lose one or two (sometimes for good) when I remove the bottom plate and they go flying to the other side of the room-- SPROING!!!
