What size wheel axle sets do I need for a recently purchased Bachmann Train N Scale Orange box car with a Rio Grande on it? It is in the Super Chief Set.
I have tried to figure it out........too complicated.   Sad

My box car flew across the room when I had a collision  Shocked and one of the wheel sets popped out and I can't find it.
Thanks for  your help.

Itís not required that you use Bímann wheelsets.
Many manufactures offer wheelsets that fit Bímann trucks.
Measure from end to end on the axle.

IIRC .563?
please double check.

Intermountain and Fox Valley, among others, make wheel sets that will fit Bachmann cars. Freight cars generally use wheels that are 33 scale inches in diameter.

If at first you don't succeed, throw it in the spare parts box.
