We tested the engine  and the motor had a major failure within 3 minutes. 
on of my rail casters came off the motor  the engine got bound up on the track  and smoked the motor causing  
MAJOR wiring harness melt down.  I rebuil the wiring harness  and although I would like to rebuild the motor it is unrepairable.
I have resorted to another motor option  power wheel  gear box motors  I hope to have the engine up and running by this weekend.
Santa would be proud  that i did not just give up for this season but turdged on with another solution.
will keep you posted.
mean while the decorations for this season are going up and its looking really good.  its gonna be a great year
