Motor conversion to DC (direct current)
For optimal driving characteristics, it makes sense to convert the motor to DC. You have the choice of the following two options for Märklin locomotives:
- Conversion to high performance drive (HLA) with 5-pole rotor, for best driving characteristics.
- Replacing the field coil with a permanent magnet. This is cheaper, but does not come close to the driving characteristics of the HLA.
On HAG locomotives only the field coil is replaced by a permanent magnet.

Price all-inclusive: 45.- CHF
Price valid for Märklin, Trix and HAG locomotives. Other brands like Roco, Fleischmann, Piko, Hornby etc. on request.
