I just checked one and it pulls an amp just spinning on the bench at 12 volts. On the track it could pull as much as 10 amps for an instant when it is starting up.

There can be a fairly wide range of performance with motors like this. The timing can vary for one thing and the brush hoods can be out of line. The armatures are supposed to be balanced, at least they have holes drilled in them, but out of dozens of armatures I never found a single one that was perfectly balanced.
