Glad to be of help.  Enjoy running your train when you have the new traction tyre fitted.

N.B Traction tyres are still available from Playmobil direct services. They are called Perbunane Rings 7231 hope this might help anyone who needs them.

Useful point, Walter, thanks for mentioning it.

When you have your loco running properly, it would be good to see it, please.

Oh, tut mir leid, ich hatte das Thema völlig aus den Augen verloren. Schön, zu sehen, daß die Tipps geholfen haben. Wenn der Ring fehlt, dann tut sich der Tender noch schwerer, weil das Rad mit der Kerbe gar keine Reibung auf's Gleis bringt. Mehr Gewicht => schau mal in einem Laden für Anglerbedarf. Dort gibt's Gewichte, die auch in den Tender passen (Du wirst halt mehrere brauchen). 2kg ist an sich kein großes Gewicht, LBG-Loks wiegen 4kg und mehr. ABER: Die Kunststoffmechanik des Playmobilmotors ist eigentlich nicht für solche Lasten ausgelegt. Wenn Du Pech hast, werden die Zahnräder irgendwann ihren Geist aufgeben  :-\.

Sorry, I entirely forgot about that topic (mail notifications don't work - whyever). Good to see, you found a solution. A missing perbunane ring makes the tender lose even more friction due to the grove not getting proper contact to track at all; so that WAS a problem!
More weight DOES give your tender better traction. But it also causes more stress to the cogwheels. An LGB engine can have 4kg and more, but its gears are made to deal with that - Playmobil's are not. Though if looking for some extra weight fitting INTO the tender check anglers shops. They're selling small weights needet for fishing - and fitting into a Playmobil engine (you might need several of them, but it'll work).

thank you for your replay, i will go for a ring replacement directly from my country's ds as soon as they open again. i believe it is the best solution as tractor was created this way, ring included as friction tool. i imagine you can insert some weight under the wood volume, there is some space. as i intend to add more cars in future i consider a non optimal solution, adding sheer metal on the tender. 
But your idea for fishing parts is a nice one to keep in mind!
