Your chassis looks pretty well identical to a Triang pacific chassis (4-6-2) but with another 4 wheeled bogie in place of the rear pony truck.

All the advice you have been given is good. It looks to me as if all you need are the pick-ups, the hairpin shaped spring that holds them in place and a bit of wire, and an insulated sleeve to prevent short circuiting across the brushes. Can you use a soldering iron? You may need to in order to connect the pick ups to the insulated brush.

When you decide to strip off the red paint, take care, do be careful not to dissolve the body. I once used a bath of brake fluid, it worked well and left all the plastic undamaged.

Best of luck.
