The Rocket trains, now equipped with a motor and gear. Have made modifications to the model so it fits this propulsion. Engine and transmission is complete and comes from, Velleman, Gearbox KNS7.
The complete model of the Rocket can be found here.


Motor part. on the plate sits a fixed wing on each side, It shall be removed. I sanded it down with motor slip. Once that's done solder the wires on the electric motor.
Select ratio 1:60. The long shaft should be cut to 62mm length (Driving wheel axle)
Press down on the bracket, as the pictures show. Select the appropriate battery type. should be put in the barrel to give the locomotive a little weight. install a switch between the battery and motor. And maybe some type of speed control, I noticed that they only fit 3 AA baterier.

Hi shaische
Nice, that you like my motorized model.
it is not so heavy. but with short carriages it will work fine.
Will produce some slip rings in nijaflex, then maybe the friction will increase a little.
I will be happy if you upload a picture when you are assembled together model.

This is so cool! We're making one right now!

I printed one of these trains out for my grandson. Just got the motor in the mail the other day. got the motor on Ebay. When he gets done I will post a picture. I myself made the train engine, without the motor and posted a picture on the other site.
Thank you, Have a good day.
