Title: Replacing Plastic Wheels of Harry Potter Coaches
Post by: kman781 on November 27, 2009, 03:14:19 PM
Hi everyone,

Though technically not a "Thomas" product, the Harry Potter trainset is similar since it and the Thomas products are based off British railway equipment. I dug up the two coaches from my basement and want to put them back in service- but not with the plastic wheels.

How and where can I obtan metal wheels equivalent to the size of the plastic wheels that came with the coaches?

Check for the bachmann branchline spares and there should be wheelsets in packs of ten. Choose the disc ones and that should do it. :)

well go to the regular bachmanntrains.com then click the UK flag then go to products, then bachmann OO scale Branchline products, then it would be (correct me if i'm wrong) under parts or under something else related to parts. hope this helps

Unfortunately, I think I'd have to be a resident of the UK to be able to obtain these parts. Thanks anyways.

Nope, Bachmann Trains USA should be able to get them for you, as I've managed to do vice-versa (Bachmann USA items via Bachmann UK) before. :)
