kits that allow the installation of Faulhaber coreless motors - see Harald
Freudenreich's articles in the May/June 2001 and July/August 2001 issues of
Ztrack magazine for details.
As for replacing/upgrading the motors in Micro-Trains locomotives, I
haven't heard of this being done, except for John Jabour's post here:
I hope this helps!
