Re: Horizontal Brake Wheels highlighting Tichy parts


were the actual brake wheels used with flat cars and tank cars different than those used on reefers and boxcars.

Depends on time period. Before geared hand brake were widely adopted, no, wheels on house cars were the same by and large as those on tanks and flats.

After the adoption of geared hand brake, wheel size and wheel / gear layout diverged quickly.
