1st run . So it is about 12 years old now , but as I said in the opening post it has done bugger all running . That is the disappointing thing. Ive got another 3 trainorama 44's , 3 42's and 2 48's(besides the one with a failed motor ) and im just hoping that i dont have a problem with them in the future.
I have a motor that seems to be no longer available bought for about $10 from you know where. Funnily enough two that I ordered seemed to disappear off the face of the earth and the sender went off market so I bought 3 from another dealer. I have fitted one to an Athearn switcher and it runs very well.
Believe it or not, last night I checked my letter box to get out junk mail and the extra two were sitting in it posted in August 2019! If you PM your email and an address, I can send you dimensions and see if it will fit. I am not familiar with the 44 as I model Canadian anyway but if it is satisfactory, you can have it at what I paid and postage. I don't need 4 spares, or at least I hope I do not!
Failing that, a check of Ebay will find motors that are recommended as replacements for Athearns etc.
If I can help, let me know
