Train motor entrails - Santeri Piippo - 2018-08-06

Here's some pics from inside 87574 train motor. It is sealed by 6× Torx T6 screws and requires the appropriate screwdriver to open.

First view inside. We can see that there's a two-headed DC motor, with power first transferred through a crown gear and then further stepped down.

The bottom part is not completely symmetrical. So if it does not fit snugly in when reassembling, don't force it, instead rotate it by 180° and try again.
