Through my own stupidity, I've managed to burn out the motor on a Hornby
2721 class Pannier Tank. Ironically, this was previously a good runner, and
I would like to repair it for service on my sons new layout. Problem is, I'm
having trouble identifying the motor in the Modelspares and East Kent
Models lists in Railway Modeller.
The engine was part of a set dated 1997 and the chassis has "Made in Great
Britain" on the underside. There is nothing I can read written on the motor
itself, but there is a plastic shroud which carries a pickup and connectors,
this has L7754 written on it.
If a more recent motor from the Chinese equivalent will fit then that's
fine, I've not much experience of recent Hornby product to know what
interchanges are possible.
Anyone care to suggest the most appropriate chip to get this one working
with a Bachmann E-Z Command system? Have you worked out what killed the
original motor yet :-)
I think the Part Number you are looking for is X8202. This is the Motor that
was used in the 0-6-0 Locomotives in 1997.
I hope this helps you.
