The loco pulled with ease 4 double Mehano container wagons up my 2% inclined track. The load was gradually increased and it came to a standstill eventually when loaded with 8 wagons.

Stefane,

Limitbahn's website states for the Faur model: Fully built model. All wheel drive. Overall metal design. Opening doors. LED lights. Bogies are chain driven. Digital interface NEM 652. Five pole motor. Decoder – Sound. NEM 362 coupling socket.
However, no instructions on how to open the model for servicing have been provided though I requested them. When I receive something, I would be happy to share.

Additionally to my last message, I found this photo indicative of the way the Limitbahn A156 is powered. I hope this helps, Stefane.

Thank you Christo. It works with two drive belts. I think that I have see such transmition in Jouef V60 and initial Trix Br221.

And the frame is formed by photo etched pieces. That is the reason why it weighs only 140gr.
But the transmition is very prototypical. I don't know how good is its running characteristics (especially in tight curves), but mechanically the model is very respectful. And painting (especially the very first modell) and lettering are very impressive.
