    It's a motor from a desktop CD/DVD drive :-)

    Not a bad idea if it keeps a few lima models knocking around for a few more years.

    I know the CD motor has been suggested before. It doesn't seem very expensive it if fits in and saves some work on figuring out the retrofit from scratch. These must be secondhand motors I suspect. Wonder how long they would last. Possibly a fair while as CD/DVD drive get a fair amount of spinning relative to being on a loco unless you're running it all day long. Free shipping for most of you too!
    Anybody used one...?

    I used CD motor in a Hornby HST a while back. They fit near perfectly the only issue being getting the drive gear to fit snugly on the motor shaft.
    They can be picked up easily from junked PC's, laptops or stereos, here's a link.

    Well done, IT. I knew someone had used one from scratch but had forgotten who. Seems to run very well!
