Title: Upgrading Anne and Clarabel to Metal Wheels
Post by: YoHo on July 20, 2010, 06:15:04 PM
I did a search for this already and saw this thread:
http://www.bachmanntrains.com/home-usa/board/index.php/topic,11154.0.html

but the wheelsets in the Branchline OO gauge look like "pizzacutters" to me.

I'm looking to be able to run Thomas on a club layout on a section that is Code70 dual gauge. Thomas runs fine, but the coach's wheelsets are not in gauge and they pick the guardrails.
Any idea what wheels would be the correct size and offer a profile that would work with Code 70?

If you want NEM compliant wheelsets:

36-028 - Metal Split Spoked Wagon Wheels (x10)

That's what you want, they are profiled for code 75, so you should have no issue with them. Used them with my stock and not had a problem. (I use Peco trackwork, code 75)
