Title: Rolling stock wheel dimensions?
Post by: Flare on February 06, 2019, 02:53:30 PM
I'm building an On30 Porter tender and would like it to have spoked wheels, the Thomas line looks like a good source.

I need the wheels to be 24" in 1:48 scale, are there any wagon or coach wheels that might be large enough?

The standard wagon wheel should work for it. Its 13.5 mm in diameter.

My math says that's nearly half an inch larger than the prototype.

Close enough for me.  Thank you.  :)
