Thanks Mike......I know there has to be a way. Your information was helpful and I have already started looking on ebay for a motor that might work. I keep typing in hoge in hopes that something turns up. It makes me wonder what happened to the motor that mine came with. No telling.

The tricky part is that it appears the Hoge motor doesn't have a name plate associated with it like many Lionel locomotives did through the Prewar and Postwar years. There's a good chance you could run into one on ebay, but I think the chances that it's being sold by somebody that knows it's a Hoge mechanism are a lot smaller than the chances of one being for sale by an unknowing seller. You might need to do some more vague "O gauge motor" style searches to come up with something, although there will likely be thousands of hits with a search like that.
