Might be off topic a hit but I bought a Lionel RS 3 a while back that had one pull more motor. If I ran it with the motor in the rear it was a fair puller, otherwise it couldn't get out of it's own way. I added a second powered truck and now it pulls great.

IMHO pullmore's were great motors in their day.

You must have the wrong engine pictured.  I believe the engine you show is a LionChief Plus engine, which has dual vertical dc can motors and not an ac Pullmor motor. These engines have great pulling power. Lionel never made any RS-3s with Pullmor motors - Pullmor motors won't fit in the narrow RS-3 shell.

Yea- my bad. This has a can motor in the truck. I added a second.
