There's a very interesting article in the current (September) British Railway Modelling, on page 78/79, about the Triang X04 motor and some of the attempts to provide replacements once it had been dropped from production.
Another problem is that apparently there are no replacement brushes available any more for those who wish to continue using X04 and similar motors.
Perhaps one or more of the national societies could organise something? They are more likely to be able to get sufficient numbers to make up viable orders than individuals or even clubs.

Michael C Shaw, the author of the BRM article, reckons there is a Marklin brush that can be modified to fit the X04. But there does seem to be an element of appeal in the article for someone to organise a 'plug-in' replacement motor, perhaps with 5 poles or more rather than the X04's three to give smoother running.
