>>I had my Berlyn Bogie opened up when I installed a rear coupler (had to cut the back of the rear truck frame I think). As I remember the axle gear was as large as they could get - and there wasn't much room in the boiler for a double reduction. This is going to be a tough remotor/regear job. I sure would like to see it done - and an article on how it was done. For now mine serves as a neat display train!If that's a fast running motor in there, you just have to replace with a
slower running motor instead.
You might like to check out the hand sized motor tach's sold in RC hobby
shops. I bought one for the bench and future work. They are great tools,
handy for testing an original motor in a case like this.
