Fixing an electric toy train engine

I was asked to repair a toy train that was not working.

After checking the batteries for power with a multi-meter I guessed it was the motor and pulled it apart.

I cleaned the grease off the rotor and took some fresher grease, still black looking, from the contact points.

I spread the grease around the clean rotor and reassembled it.

It Worked!
