Each motor is supplied with a 'standard' dropper resistor which is
2.4mm diameter x 6mm long, remember to allow some lead length
to each end for connecting the wires.
6 volt rated 6mm x 12mm Micro Motor
with dropper resistor (runs on 12Vdc)
You may be thinking 'why not a 12V micro motor?'.  Just in case
you don't think I have considered this lets just say that it took a
couple of years to get to 6V and the evidence is pretty clear that a
12V motor this size is more or less impossible from a technical
standpoint.  Its all to do with how many turns of wire you need and
how thin the wire needs to be as a result!
Note this drawing is around 2.5 times bigger
than actual size.

Here are some pictures of a Marklin Z scale
loco (8805) which I have re-motored with one
of the 6V micro motors.  It runs extremely
A suitable shaft 1mm adapter and
resistor are now available.

This is a 6mm diameter x 12mm long 3 pole coreless DC motor
nominally rated at 6V but suitable for running at voltages up to 12V
DC with the resistor provided.  It may be used as a drive motor from
Z, Nn3 etc through 009/HOe/HOn30 and even in some HO/OO
   Click here for SMT resistor instructions.
A 'surface mount' resistor with mounting pad is available seperately
if needed,  The SMT resistor is about 3.6mm x 2mm x 1.5mm on its
mounting pad and the connection area is within this.
Precision turned brass shaft adapters are
available to convert the 0.8mm shaft to 1mm or 1.5mm
