Re: Metal Wheels

I have had best results with Intermountain wheelsets, purchased in boxes of 100 axles.  And yes, that can be a significant expense.  The Intermountain wheels come in 33" and 36" diameters.  Tread width is not offensive.

There are NO plastic wheels on my railroad, and operation is not impeded by dirty track.  What used to be a headache is gone.

I try not to calculate what I have spent on wheelsets over the years; best not to think about it.  Just convert as you can.
