Noting Oz that you come from Australia and also noting that you have just had a very very hot Summer which almost burnt down Sydney. I was wondering if maybe the hot summer had anything to do with the lack of lubricant in the loco. It may have dried out in the heat. It is probably best to lubricate all new locomotives purchased in your part of the world. The hot running motor could well be down to the additional friction caused by the lubrication issue. If the loco had been on the shelf for a while then who knows...

The only real way of finding out if this was the case would be to try another example of the same loco from the same store.

You now have the excuse to buy two!

Happy modelling
