Hornby Gwr

Model Train (GWR) wont move!?

I have a little green 'Great Western' model train ( 00 gauge ) and looks exactly like:

" http://www.osbornsmodels.com/ekmps/shops/osbornsmodels/images/r2534a-hornby-gwr-class-2721-no-t.b.a.-577-p.jpg "

When on the rails, the motor moves, you can hear it, and see it if you remove the chasis and watch the motor spin round! However, it wont actually move! Just makes a motor noise. If you give it a push, it moves about 3cm, then makes noises again !!

Any help? Thanks!

It probably has Nylon gears in the drivetrain.I'd take the body off and look to see if one of them is stripped or missing one or more teeth.It could just need a gear mesh adjustment too.
