For both the NP Rapido boxcars, all 16 of them, and their USRA DS boxcars, factory wheelsets were replaced with Intermountain 0.88 wheels.

With my prior stock of Rapido HO code 88 wheelsets exhausted, and no sign of those sets being restocked, or of my favorite Reboxx ever being made again, what are y'all using for replacement wheel sets with 1.020 or thereabouts axle lengths?


Intermountain and Tangent are 1.004" axles so too short for most trucks, except Tangent and IM and ExactRail are even shorter at 1.002".
