Tri-ang were taken over and became Tri-ang Hornby then eventually just Hornby, so they may be the same?
You need more details i.e. motor type number ideally.
Ringfield brushes item X8466 are round rod shaped items held in place by coil springs.
Example see this listing... Example brushes for Ringfield motor

Do you mean Bushes or Brushes please. John

If it is Bushes you want for the armature shaft then you may have trouble getting some for the ring field motor. I may be able to help. John

Mod note.. Two posts merged.
