I've never had that problem with my Athearn engines. The only problems 
I've had with my F7's and Baldwin switcher, is that annoying top contact 
strip on the motor kept getting bent. I've since replaced it with wire, 
and the problem is gone. The Baldwin is noisier than the F-units, but it 
appears to be mostly the gears causing it. But, it's still quieter than 
my Bachmann Plus F40PH!
