I am a long time lurker and this is my first post.
I have a LGB 22382 Christmas Streetcar that I bought new several years ago. It has very few hours, probably minutes, on it since I did not run it every Christmas.
The problem is it’s very sluggish when running on the track or when I connect a power supply directly to the electrical pickups. At 12 VDC it draws 2 amps with the wheels free spinning. Does anyone know if this current draw is normal? I am thinking it drawing too much current and that is why it’s sluggish.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
