    I have a couple of the bachmann On30 christmas village street cars and they are noisy.
    I have pulled them apart and greased with labells #106 all of the gears but it still does it.

    I deburred the slot where the axle crosses the frame. they seam to be ok on the bench but when I put them on the track with the body they make thier noise.

    can I oil the motor bearings themselves?

    any help would be great

    Does this mean they are quiet until the body is re-installed ?? If so, some foam tape,(weatherstrip) applied in the right places to stop body vibration just might cure the problem.

    I think the body may be amplifing the noise, but also the weight seams to have something to do with it.

    thanks for the reply

    Mine is pretty noisy too, "ghrrr...erreororeo...ghrrr...erreororeo..." But with the two O gauge and the On30 running you can't hear it anyway. I've taken it apart and lubed it, but it didn't help. It's just the nature of the beast I'm afraid.
