Back in the days when I raced (late 60's) 3 pole X04 style motors in slot cars, one trick to increase smoothness was to rewind the armature but while it was stripped of wire we would stagger the laminations, that is fan them out so there was a twist to the armature. That may help smoothness with DCC.

Another trick was to double up the pole pieces with curved strips of mild steel, back then the local Lucas repair shop could remagnetize your motor and magnet. As I live in the USA I am out of touch with the UK, do you still have dynamo/starter repair shops with remagnetizing machines?
