Default Stumped by my Ruby

Hello,

Just got started and I have an Accucraft Ruby. Out of the box she ran great, but now she steams very sluggishly. I often have to push her along and she lacks the steam to complete a single circuit around my oval of track. Often there is very little steam coming out of the stack, just hot water. At first I thought I had too much water in the boiler, but it still happens no matter how diligent I am about water levels. Then I asked around on Facebook and heard the gas jet might be clogged. I rinsed it out with butane and that made no difference in performance. I believe she's priming but I don't know what the culprit is or how to fix this issue. Any help would be very much appreciated.
