I have a 1989 Lionel engine (Iron Horse Freight) that is causing my transformer circuit breaker to trip. I have checked the track, wire and everything else and the only problem I can find is that the engine is causing the breaker to trip. (I took the leads and turned the engine over to see if it would run) Is there anything I can check on the engine that might be causing it? It will run and then all of a sudden stop, I pick up the engine and lightly shake it around and it will start to work again for a while. I did do a search in the google news group search engine and did not find anything that would help me on this subject. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
