Ultimate Motor Upgrade

The Holy Grail

A motor upgrade for the famous Egger-Bahn, and later Jouef models: It is almost the holy grail of H0e modelling. The Tramfabriek has received many request for such an upgrade, but through the years, I wasn’t happy with the possible solutions. So finally, especially for these classic models, I had a motor made that avoids using bulky, inaccurate casings. The motor is now mounted on a bracket and simply replaces the original motor. You’ll be impressed with the improved driving capabilities. The model now can run very well at slow speeds.

As of February 2024, the kit now also comes with a replacement brass worm. Also available separately.

Question? Just reach out!

Coupling rods

To complete your motor upgrade and to add more detail to your model, the Tramfabriek introduces separately available coupling rods. These are an excellent addition to the OEG steam loco and Ruhr-Lippe steam railcar, but also the modern Minitrains models. Some might think the rods would be covered by the side skirts of the model, but the moving motion can clearly be seen through the holes. A simple, but worthy upgrade.

Please note: on the etch, some washers are supplied. They are not intended for the Egger-Bahn/Jouef models, so don’t (try to) use them. They won’t fit.

Quartering tool

Not all wheels are quartered correctly. With this tool it is easy to align them. Just turn on the handles until the holes on both wheels are in line with each other. The coupling rod on one side should be mounted 90 degrees different from the other side.

Set with of two handles, as pictured. Ready to use. Wheels not included.
