There are magnets with different powers. Neodymium magnets are very strong.
The magnets are also differentiated according to the intended use.

Control magnet

Switching magnet

The magnets are attached to the model to trigger Reedswitch or HG1 (Hall sensor).

Pre-tensioning magnet

Reed switches are pre-magnetized in order to react to a certain polarity.

Stop magnet

They are built into the layout to stop DC cars with millimeter precision.

Coupling magnet

This is used to keep flaps closed or other components to be held together.
E.g. cover on a vehicle or trailer on the traction engine.
