Default hornby r240 class 91

What motor is fitted to the Hornby r240 class 91 and was the motor fitted to other hornby locos?

Just out of interest all the spares are available for it as well. Of course that will not last for ever.

Can anybody tell me if the class 91 body of the hornby R240 would fit on the chassis of the hornby class 91 R3365 ?

Had quick look and it looks very much the same to me. It does look similar and you can normally make anything fit anything with a little time and and cutting. But it does look to me very close .
What is the reason for changing the chassis if you dont mind me asking. Is there any advantage. John
