Has anyone done any testing to see how long the new sealed 5-pole motors last? I'm curious to know...
Hornby are quite non-specific and merely state 'after a considerable amount of use', which isn't much help
- where as they used to give a life expectancy in hours with the old Ringfields.

Has anyone done any 'destruction testing' by leaving a 5-pole engine on a rolling road until it packs up?

I'm tempted to try this myself if no one knows, at about £5.00 for a replacement motor it'll hardly break the bank...
