Any suggestions regarding the replacement of the original motor in tank lok 5746 and tender lok 5799?

The motor in my 5746 is seized, although I have not taken it out to determine why just yet. My 5799 still runs, but does so in only one direction at the moment. I have read in other posts on this forum about possibly needing to adjust the reversing spring.

I want to upgrade both loks to digital with sound modules, so this needs to be figured into any modifications I do. All of my trains have been in storage for more than 15 years and I am finally getting them out and once again dreaming of layouts... although a few tracks in the garden might have to do for a while.

I have a BR80, model number 5710/5712/5719 (not sure which exact model as there is no longer a sticker underneath) which I had fitted with a LokSoundXL V3.0 back in 2005. This was just before everything went into storage. I never bought a digital transformer which could make full use of this, so any suggestions on a unit which will work for all three of these loks, once they’ve been upgraded would be greatly appreciated.
