When the models came out there were brand licencing issues and I had to obtain items via ebay from the USA and Australia! I'm still not certain of the current legality of shops here offering them for sale, but there are several internet sources for you to purchase from. Sadly "James" failed recently at a show, and subsequent investigation proved that the motor had partially disintegrated internally. It is a cheap motor design without proper carbon brushes - only simple metal wipers, therefore effectively a "throw-away" unit.
A search of the internet failed to locate a direct Tomix replacement, and I had nothing suitable (in terms of dimensions that would fit) in my collection of salvaged motors. I ordered a couple of chassis from PlazaJapan via ebay as this is still cheaper than sourcing locally.
The most difficult aspect of replacing the motor was removing the worm from the original in order to re-use it. I used a "Worm Puller" device, it's especially important to do this step carefully to avoid damaging the brass worm. It is actually smaller than the original, but with the same shaft diameter which saves a lot of trouble!
It's also a "throw-away" design without replaceable brushes, so it'll be interesting to see how it lasts.
It comes fitted with a plastic connector for a shaft drive, this is easily pulled from the shaft.
The worm from the old motor was gently tapped onto the shaft, making sure not to put strain on the motor internals.
Perhaps a touch faster top speed than before due to the different motor characteristics, but nice and smooth. I suspect that with a bit more research a similar motor may be available on it's own without the need to purchase a complete Kato chassis.
However the chassis was cheap, and the rest of it will be put to good use for something or other!

Kato's Unitrack modular track system takes very little time to put together whether permanent or temporary, always the same result, an almost instant sturdy operational model railway enabling you more time for modelling n scale scenery and buildings. Having the Unitrack ballasted, with an integral roadbed, allows for the possibility to create scenic boards, as any of your chosen model railway displays will always be the same shape each time created, giving flexibility and choice along with easier storage if your creation has to be put away. Because the Kato Unitrack system is already ballasted it has great stability along with superior connectivity thanks to their Unijoiner concept. The Unijoiners allow sections to be snapped together quickly and securely, time and time again.
In a nut shell, no more faffing around with buckled warped rusty conventional track, soldering joints to avoid poor conductivity and hold the old track together. For stubborn spots, paint or glue on the rails it is recommended a soft rubberized abrasive eraser is used or a track cleaning car. A constant use of abrasives is NOT recommended which also includes sandpaper, steel wool & cleaning pads, any liquid that is not compatible with plastic or is of a caustic chemical compound. The Kato Unitrack precision model railway system is immense, with every conceivable railway layout catered for, including ground level concrete & Wood sleeper track sections, Risers, Viaducts, Bridges, Twin Rail, Banked Curves and much much more ! The Kato Unitrack model railway system is compatible with all other N gauge Usa, European and Japanese N scale locomotives and train rolling stock such as Fleischmann, Minitrix, Peco, Graham Farish and Dapol.
