My smallest Marklin loco 0-6-0 BR89 with
a 5-pole motor needs only 2.5 - 3 volts to
run at a moderate speed. Over 3 volts it starts
running too fast and 8 volts makes it to run
like a bullet train.
It takes only about 150 - 200 mA.
I think it is quite the same with other locos too.
With max voltage 8 or 10 volts all locos run
too fast. I guess no loco takes over 400 mA.
Maybe somebody else knows better.
