I found this motor on a popular auction site.  It seems like it might be a good choice if the original one is really bad.  BTW the drivers should be about 1.625"   I'm not a fast runner, I've been advocating lower gear ratios (slower) for years.  But if you want RPMs you need more voltage!  Even Lionel's 700-series Hudsons were rated for 20 volts.  I'm pretty sure Right Of Way developed its 16-amp, 24-volt transformer with these Williams locos in mind.  Circa 1990, that's the way the hobby was going.  Those transformers still command a good price when you can find them.

That motor is good for like a cordless drill ....no??.....looks to be an amp hog....
