Hi Billy

Not sure if I'm on the right track with your Loco
but as it is new it may need a little more running in before conversion to DCC , things are probably a little tight in the drive
and the BEMF is trying to compensate

I get the same problem with older loco's that need a new backplate ( so one new bearing that can be tight)
and need to run them for while before pluging the decoder in

hope this helps

Regards Zmil

I got mine last week after 5 months waiting on pre-order!

At last! I'm really pleased with it and it looks fantastic cruising round the layout. Mine made a slight squeaking noise until it had been run in (analogue so can't help with the DCC queries). To me it just looks best in blue/grey livery for some reason?

Wish all my stuff came out that quick

Brawa's Prussian S9 was announced this time last year, and has still not been released!
