magne-tractionHow can you tell whether or not a postwar Lionel motor has magnatraction?
I know what it is, but I want to know how to tell if a given motor has this feature or not...
All I have is the motor assembly so there is no cab number... It is from a steam locomotive, the standard 6 wheel design used in many different models... Some came with magnatraction and some did not, yet they look pretty much the same... I need to know what little difference there is between the two which shows that a motor has magnatration...
I have a few of those axles I talked someone to throw in a junk lot I got.The axles are larger. They magnetize the wheels. I think my 2036 has it.
I beat all else when I say.......................,LOL, I just took a closer look at the 685 motor and there are actually magnets in the u-shaped slots around the axles :retard:
