SPUDs were designed for that sort of conversion, but apparently difficult to convert to DCC.

I just bought some of these from www.brimal.co.uk - excellent service - ordered yesterday and turned up in this mornings post.

The junction boards were less than a fiver and the IR sensors less than 50p each.

You can use the junction boards either to connect your DCC track droppers to your power bus or to connect up to 18 accessory decoders to an accessory or track bus.

The IR sensors will be used for loco detection - one day.

Fit a motor in the coach? Could be done but the coaches are tiny.

Precisely what I've attempted, but the motor stands about 3 mm too tall.

I was thinking more of the horizontal motored variants...

What about the motor in the Bachmann Wickham Trolley. It is minute. It is in the wagon.

Aren’t there some powered bogies from Japan(?) that would do the job? Tenshodo or BlackBeetle are names lurking in my memory.

The wagon in the middle of these two Rail-buses is powered with a Blackbeetle.
