Single axle mounted motor in 00

Question

Hi guys

 

Is there such a thing as a motor that would drive or connect to just a single axle? I'm thinking of building a piece of on track plant, something like the old plasser sandite unit. Any thoughts?

Yes, it's pretty common, although you'll need a gearbox as well... otherwise you'll have two speed settings: warp speed and stop.

 

Edit: Something like this Mashima motor would be suitable - http://www.ebay.ie/itm/Mashima-Motor-MH-1224D-10-5-polig-12V-DC-Gleichstrom-MHK-MH-1224-/262022885652?hash=item3d01c7f114:g:bpIAAOSwBLlVO1MG

 

And some gearboxes: http://www.djhmodelloco.co.uk/motors-gearboxes-oo-ho-scale/

Suggest you check out the High Level website good selection of gearboxes and motors The boxes virtually fall together I tend to use them for everything.Andy

Note that Mashima motors are no longer being made, so stocks are increasingly finite. Also, remember that single axle drive will severely limit haulage power, but on the sort of vehicle you are considering should not be a problem as long as you get plenty of weight on the driven axle.
