Hi everyone - I recently took my Hornby Flying Scotsman out of long term storage. After briefly running, it came to a shuddering stop, with the motor in the loco attempting to drag the seemingly dead L5136 tender. I've removed the loco and tender bodies to try and spot any wiring issues, but I can't see anything obvious. I understand the coupling between the two can be temperamental with these, but it seems to be OK, and manually manipulating it doesn't seem to have any effect. Any advice on this would be welcome!

Thanks - the first and third axles do appear to be stuck, but i thought this was just resistance from the motor. I'll try to lubricate these and see what happens. The set has been in storage for about ten years, so I suppose it's unsurprising!
