Thanks Larry,

all good info.

It's certainly a toy train set loco, that's for sure.
I plan to use it with very short trains.
But it isn't much different than most locos as far as the drive.
Did I say most locos? I meant, most cheap toy train locos :)

It's just ye olde motor with a worm gear on the shaft and a big gear on the wheel axle,
which has always worked for many toy trains for decades.

I am thinking of using some plastic safe grease on the gears.
Something a little bit thicker than oil, but that is just me. :P

Did I ever mention that I like trains?
