    Hi.. We have been in the Train hobby most of our lives, and have large Ho that runs on computer for the main line with Sound around and 24/7 one hr. lights plus lighting storms.. also, Large garden R.R. as our u-tube shows. Any way just one question due to we do a lot of animation on our R.R. We are now trying to fine somewhere to get a hold of 1 1/2 volt or 3 v. DC motors with warm dr. gear boxs .. Any ideas beside taking kids Dolls apart for the drive like for moving arms or eyes. Anyway just picking your brains that may have some place to find a Mfg. that we can find some? Thanks for your time Noel & Jane in Rio Linda, Ca.
