 ( Edited 5/17 7:00 AM) At one time Millhouse Studios sold a Bowser  drive upgrade.  From the website.

 Bowser drive upgrade kit.    Click on the underlined phrase to link.   Stangtrain, thank you.    Second look I found  the Bowser kit.    

Bowser TT's had two problems, (1.) the 3/8" drive shaft would bend,  and (2.) the pit track boggies tended to drag.  Millhouse River, and Diamond Scale TT's, addressed the Bowser problems and work well.   

Thanks for the suggestions. That Millhouse kit is very tempting. I want to build my own, but I just know it will eventually cost more and take a lot more time than anticipated.  A good gear motor seems so easy and cheap. Famous last words.
