There was a small illustrated article on this in Model Rail magazine October 2004 if you can get a copy. It was caused by the plastic inserts in the wheels bowing outwards slightly in the middle, if you look at your loco from underneath you will probably see the same thing.

The cure was to gently lever out one side of the plastic insert with a jewellers screwdriver, put a single blob of superglue or similar in the middle of the wheel under the insert, and glue it down. It only takes a few minutes and I did it to my Bachmann Standard 4MT with perfect results. Be careful you don't overglue it though, otherwise if the glue gets through the spokes you may find that you've glued the wheels to the chassis too.

Hope it helps
