Hi,
which moving part (engine, gears) you are using for the loco?

Hi,

I use a standard toy electric motor, tha can be found at amazon.com or aliexpress.com. Since I have a crappy 3D printer, I wasn't able to print a good quality gears and worms, so finally I ordered a complete 3-axl bogies from aliexpress.com.

Here is a sample link:

I also used stock knuckle couplers, again from aliexpress.com, an ear stick for the shaft :) and a 0.8 mm nail, that I cut and made it operate as a cross joint.
