I'll give everything a good clean but I fear it might be a split gear.

I had a Jinty that was going something similar

After a lot of time investigating it turned out to be the frame around the motor had de-bonded and was moving about. Super glued back together and problem sorted

I have given the commutator a good clean, it didn't look too dirty.

I spotted something else that may have caused the problem, the plastic covering on the wire that runs along the top of the chassis to the tv suppression thingy had shrunk and the wire was touching the top of the copper brush clip. I assumed that wasn't good and added some insulating tape.

The loco is now running well again, touch wood  :D

 :thankyousign:

For all the help.

Sounds like you cracked it. Great news. Time to play trains again. Yippee  :claphappy:
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!
