Question about Crafts & Hobbies
I have checked wiring, deleted & reloaded locomotive data, and checked power on track. Voltage change is minimal when using mobile station control knob

SOURCE: I never used my new
What made you think of the loco now after not using it (even as new) for over 31 years? Anyway, better late than never.
It seems that due to disuse there is a collection of dirt or whatever between the carbon brushes and the rotor connectors preventing the brushes to make contact with the rotor. Clean this area. The brushes are on the end other than the pulley or gear end. Two brushes would have one wire connected to each. pull the brushes up and clean the brush and the rotor by rotating it.

Sparky's is a common nickname & one
of the joys of our track powered trains.
Clean your wheels and track, it will help
lessen the sparking. Also make sure
your track is level without gaps
between the track sections.
hope this helps.

You do not specify which Santa Fe steam engine you have, but I am going to guess it's the Santa Fe RTR O27 set...
Here's a link to the manual for it. Go to page 9, read the last paragraph on the page. It may be the answer to your problem
Hope this helps.

Replace all batteries in locomotive & remote.
You do need to be fairly close to the set with the
remote for it to work.
