Enjoy this basic video showing how to effectively lubricate a TYCO PowerTorque diesel locomotive. Remember, whenever oiling a model train, always use an oil specifically for model trains.

I believe new lubrications are always better than the old...

Yeah, I personally wouldn't use anything old. Chances are, it will not work well. Also, for model trains, I'd use model train synthetic-type oil, and nothing else.
