    Thanks Mike!

    I do barely a kiss of Labelle's oil every once in awhile. My motto is, if the gears a shinny I've put too much.

    Less is more when lubing an engine.

    This video should be added to the sticky threads so it's available for ready reference.

    Nice review Mike, but I have one unanswered question.

    What or how do you get all of the excess material cleaned off? For example, I have a few locomotives that came back from warranty repair just sitting in a pool of oil in their jewel cases. What is the best way to get these really clean?

    I dis-assemble the whole locomotive and wash in dish soap and water.
