Hi Johnny:

Thanks for the question. These loco's really did kind of top out on speed early. They are Minitrix made so if it is cleaned and lubed that is about as good as you can do. Found this on youtube if you want to give that a go:

Have fun with your vintage train!!!!

My area of knowledge is with the N Scale Aurora Postage Stamp train line that was sold from 1967-1973. I can answer 99% of all questions about this line.


I have a large collection of these trains and consider myself in the top 3 experts in the country and probably the world.
