    Hi, I'm new to the forum so forgive me if I posted this in the wrong area. I just bought a Rivarossi Berkshire and it's not running correctly. The problem is that it takes almost full throttle to get it to run and when it does, the motor gets really hot and the pickup wheels on the tender get burnt looking within minutes. I did all the usual cleaning of the wheels and inspected the drivetrain but nothing seems to be hung up or binding. I'm wondering if the motor might be on its way out.
    Anyway, I thought I'd post here to see if there's any good parts suppliers for these loco's and possibly find a parts breakdown or repair manual.
    Any help is appreciated.
