I just received an MDC Big Hustler kit. Not bad for $40.00. I remember seeing these at train meets ten years ago for $45.00 and up.
My question is about the motor block. I opened it to learn how it operates and just to learn how it is assembled. I noticed that the worm gears and axel gears are bone dry. Not a drop of any sort of lubricant. None, nadda, zip, zilch, like empty man. Should these gears be lubricated?
