I have ridden on trains like this one for almost as far back as I can remember . . .So why has it taken this long for a model to come out.

Answer by billy
Several things can happen, most often it is because the wheels or the top of the track is dirty and they don’t make good contact in certain places and in other places they do. Clean them both good. If its in the motor then the contacts inside the motor are dirty, they can be cleaned but you have to know what you are doing and be careful to get it all back right. Sounds like track and wheels though.
