Since then the train runs slow any ideas, She has a smoke box attached.

Flooded it with WD40 to clear any debris etc.

Probably did far more harm than good - after a while WD40 turns into a sticky gunk. Any form of oil will have contaminated the carbon on the brushes.

I know some of them now sell LPG but gas station ?
