Posted by texasperry on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 9:57 AM

Folks i am looking for a source for Micro trains motor.

I have written MT but have not received a reply. In particular I al looking for a replacment motor for a Micro trians FT loco.

Internet search has not turned up any MT specific motors. Atlas and Kato do show up. 

Thanks

Perry

If you can’t find a motor I have a small Philips that you can have for the asking.
 
 
This is a motor that Motorman sent me to test.  The RPM is a bit high (9K) but it has plenty power.
 
Over the years Motorman sent me a lot of motors to test for him.  He was a great guy and a great source of model railroad motors.   I really miss the Motorman, RIP Eldon Shirley.
 
EDIT:
 
The weird looking thing on the shaft is a piece of tape for checking the RPM with my laser Tach.
