Thanks!  WRT fixing it up, it winds and sets smoothly, and the balance swings freely, but the train doesn't move.  So, it's off to the Watch Guy when my current batch comes back!  Till then, I can just admire it....

Hi Doug,

 

You might also wish to review the information hereafter, as we're presently (still) openly debating the four known (but currently only two, illustrated!) models that take very similar cases... currently attributed to the "Senator" and "Spencer" namesakes!
