is it only the motor you are missing?

the motorising kit was with the wheels with a steel rim and pick ups.

all pictures and text in red on the manual are the extras who came in the motorising kit 

any 12v motor will do fine, i have put a faulhaber in it, a bit larger then the origional , but with some try and error it is posible

post some pictures ,its easyer to see what your problem is


Hi I can post pictures but all I have is literally many bags (and I mean LOTS of bags - according to the shipping weight 6 pounds of them - supposedly enough for 5 engines and 1 tender) of plastic only parts with 95% of all the pieces still on the sprue  I needed your instructions just so I could start to sort all the various pieces out. I think they may have even included parts from other kits LOL  There are no metal parts at all (no wheels, pickups, wires etc) so I imagine I would need what AHM would call the entire motorized kit. If metal parts are needed I am missing them


best thing to do can be , buy annother one

here you have one (i think cheap) , and maybe there are forum members who can help you on this 

otherwise you have a shelf queen.

if it is the model you like, you can take a look on the www and look for a KMT , i believe, they made a brass one

how i know, i have 3 of them and doing a remotering on them



Yes it's a bit sad you can't get it up and running they look good on the track crawling slowly through a maze of turnouts but then I suppose Brass one's are the same except I've never seen a brass locomotive in standard O scale and probably never will. I can live without them, I have plenty of Rivarossi 0-8-0 kits to play with and the layout is completely diesel for operations. Roo.

Yes - they are beautiful models, and in the proper scale for the track gauge.  But motorizing them does little to make them better.  You would really need a better engine bed and metal drivers, with a good NWSL gearbox and an 8000-series Pittman or equivalent.  I had one, motorized, and loved the detail, but as a runner it sucked.

The KTM version is 1/4" scale, and not as well detailed, but it will run better. They are showing up at around $450 on eBay.
