Derek, I would first ask, how new is it? I've often found with new locos that they seem to need a little nudge to start, it's nothing to do with timing, just that everything is a little tight and in time it will pass. There can sometimes be a 'dead spot' even with a well run in loco, and then the way to clear that is to just switch to reverse and move it a touch, then return it to forward and it will go.

Good morning Bob,
Thank you for your input. This was the first time running and hopefully therefore things will settle down.

No problem Derek, glad to be of assistance. However I think your Sweet William's little nudge is a bit different to the one that this thing needs. It better improve - it's getting to my back! However I don't think it should ever suffer from the 'dead spot' syndrome, with four cyls to shove it along. He he!
