    I recieved this loco from my sister for Christmas. When I run it on my DC layout, it makes a lot of noise....a low whirring/rumbling sound with a lot of vibration. My son an I installed the dummy plug thinking this might have something to do with it but it didn't help. My Atlas loco is nice and quiet in comparison.

    Anyone have any ideas what's going on? Maybe I just got a lemon and will have to send it back.

    Make sure nohing is loose inside tha loco shell. In other words the motor is tight in the mount, and all of the clips and brackets from the trucks to the motor are inplace and secure so that nothing can rattle against the shell. What ever you do, don't modify the model. Bachmann gives a lifetime warranty on their locomotives. If you don't see anything obvious, send it back to Bachmann with a description of the problem and they will repair or replace it for you at no charge.
