Update

On taking another look at the Shay drive parts, I realized that what I had taken for an open frame motor is actually a coreless motor in a with flywheel in a housing/truck frame.  This suggests that the 0-4-0s also use coreless motors, with much improved low speed performance than is usually obtainable from can motors.
