My advice is also to return it - the more people do repairs to brand new equipment the more the manufactures will continue to have poor quality control. As a retailer we would prefer that anything faulty was returned so that the manufacture would get feedback in the event of a quality control issue (certainly the manufactures of the products we stock would anyway).

As Richard says if the body is too hot just think how hot the motor was ! It may be that the mechanism is stiff causing the motor to overheat. As you used the GM Rolling Road what was the current draw ?

I have found that you have to get the rollers "just right" or the loco will not run smoothly - often I find the loco will try to "climb" the rollers so you have to let the loco settle & then re-adjust.

Not too sure if .7amps is a lot for ViTrains as I've never tried one (still awaiting delivery of a couple of ViTrains SNCB 16's) - what is it drawing now on the RR ?
