Motor of the Week - Week 2 - Please help identify!

Earlier on this board I mentioned that I acquired over a dozen "junk" or derelict motors to develop my repairing skills. The motors were represented to me as Lionel post war production. I don't know what they are or what locomotives they would belong to. Can you help?

To add to interest I intend to post a new motor every week until the inventory is identified. The  expert who I.D.'s each week's motor will be awarded a "Certificate of Awesomeness"  from yours truly as a token of admiration and appreciation. Last week, brother Chuck Sartor won the first C of A.

So I put it to you, expert brothers and sisters, please: 1.) identify the motor; and 2.) Identify the locomotive it was intended to power. 

Thanks!

Here is this week's motor:StarboardsidePortsideTopsideBottomside

That is a postwar Marx motor that powers almost all of the steam engines with the exception of the Canadian Pacific types and the diecast 999. You also would not find this motor in the diecast 666 or the plastic 1666.

This motor will power all of the sheet metal postwar steamers with the exceptions noted above.

HCsader73,

that particular motor is exact one that is in 3 of our marx commodore vanderbilts engines

Several of our marx 999 engines are very similar but front body mounting bracket is a little different.

So my guess is marx commodore vanderbilt.

Thanks, Dieseler!

QUESTION: Did all  the Commodore Vanderbilts have a manual reverse lever on top? I do not see any provision on this motor for manual reverse.

You gentlemen are amazing!

I looked at the Marx CP motors and they have a different type of brush plate. So the collective wisdom of an AET-3085 is the favorite, unless Commodore V's were made without reversing levers, in which case Dieseler becomes the front runner.

Only the earliest CV's had the reverse lever, so most did not.
