    Ok, I got a brand new BLI 4-6-4 J1E - NYC engine. I didnt oil it and ran it for a few minutes and it squeaks. The instruction manual is terrible. Can someone tell me what the heck needs oil and how to get to it??

    Here's an idea. Watch your engine roll down the track, where two pieces, in the drive train, rods, valve gear, rub together, put a drop of oil at that point.
    Since this is brand new, I don't believe that areas, such as, driver axle bearings, worm/spur gears, will need lubing at this time.
