The previous post was fairly correct. With minor modifications a 249e motor will fit. As will the motors from several similar engines 261e, 262e. As he said the 238e is a strong, and beautiful locomotive. I am not sure about the wheels. I believe the front drivers will need to have crank pins. I will check on this and get back to you. Olsens train parts has exploded diagrams available. I would highly recommend visiting their website. They will also have the parts you will need, maybe even a motor. I learned from experience take your time and do it right, wait for the correct parts. Check ebay for a motor. Good luck and happy holidays.
