24volt electric motors

I have recently acquired an 0-4-0 7 1/4" loco powered by 2 in no 24 volt electric motors running in tandem chain driven to one axle.
The motors are both Fasco make made in Canada.
Motor one is 75mm diameter by 90mm long and serial no 2809-530-095
Motor two is 75mm diameter by 123mm long and serial no 2809-860-010

Has any member met these motors before and can tell me the wattage of these motors.
I have emailed the manufacturer in Canada but have had no reply.

Please help if you can

Fasco motors ceased production several years ago. The motors are most likely the 150 and 250 watt motors produced by them. They are usually 12volt but they did make some 24v version as well. Parkside railways stock direct replacement versions in both 150w and 250w which are made in England. Let me know if you need any further information, enjoy your new loco.

Hi Keith

Thank you very much for the information you supplied.
I have looked at Parkside and the description of their 150w & 250w motors fit the type that mine are very well.
Thanks again

Hello Paul ! ,

I am using those 24V, 250watts each, Permanent Magnet Motors.
I bought 4 Pieces from Parkside Electronics several years ago . They are fitted on two bogies of a french diesel BB 63000 ( 1 per axle ,and suspended " by nose " ) . they are still running , except one , wich has developed a curious noise . i dismantle it and found one Magnet unglued from the steel body ! ( each motor has 4 magnets , 2 side by side ) ; SO ,i decided to order 2 new motors from Mr MARCUS of Parkside . I will collecte them during The nest 71/4" AGM held at HEREFORD on next 12th / 13 th September ! . I will try to re-glue the damaged one and use it as Spare one !!! .
Best Regards ,
