I have an internal photograph - as soon as I work out how to upload it I will post the picture. I am convinced it's loco driven - those wheels are stiff whereas the tender ones roll freely - the middle axle just a bit slow to get involved!

Looking at the picture and the middle wheelset. There is a bronze pick up on right hand side. Cant see it on the left hand side is it bent up somewhere and restricting the free movement of wheels. You will have to drop wheels out to check I think.
Correct me if I am wrong but this tender has pick ups on both sides I think.

I agree John the left pickup is nowhere to be seen. Probably jamming the wheel.

Wow. You're right. It is loco drive. What an improvement on how it was made. (Though I like the old ringfield type motors, I've not liked them used in the tenders if one can help it as I like to have some wheelspin when starting off which looks odd if it is on the tender wheels!)
The centre wheels are obviously to a different design so disregard my earlier comments that may not relate to this new design.
It is likely that, like the others have stated, something is jamming in the centre wheels, or thew wheels need a little easing.

None of the new locos are tender drive apart from perhaps some of the Thomas range.

If I drop wheels out I need to go in from underneath. Is that correct?

Can you see if the pickup is caught up behind the left wheel?

Far as I remember from last time I took one apart some small screws bottom plate comes away and all is reveled. As Brian said you should be able to see if the contact is not in place but it could have got folded under bottom plate and you will nto see it at all. You have to find it and reshape it back the same shape as the one on the other side. Or buy new contacts. I would say this tender has been assembled by somebody not paying attention. To be polite.
Sorry cant look at one of mine as they are all pack away right now cos of move.
