I have several Fleischmann steam engines with tender drives and they all perform very nicely without any problems. In my opinion, the benefits of tender driven engines are as follows:

1. More space for the motor = more powerful
2. More space for flywheel = smother and more stable running, nice long gliding run when power is off or temporarily lost.
3. Much easier to get access to the motor and gear system for cleaning and lubrication
