Recently bought Lionel G Scale Thomas set. Ran well for some time, but now the motor has quit. Is there any source for Thomas or other Lionel engines.

Bachman does Thomas stuff in our scale.

Lionel dropped large-scale Thomas many years ago. Parts are difficult or impossible to find; I've tried. You might be better off buying a Bachmann Thomas, as I did. It's a better mechanism, although it does have quirks of its own.

Given enough info about the motor (dimensions, rated voltage etc.) it's probably possible to find a close match. I would expect Lionel used a commonly available part. Ebay has loads of motors for toys, RC cars etc.

Have you removed the motor and tested it - proved it has failed?
