I am about to upgrade the wheels on my string of GN ore cars. Looking at photos, the wheels under 40's era GN ore jennies look larger than 33". Is this an optical illusion because of the diminuitive size of these cars, or did they ride on 36" wheels???
I'd bet on the illusion. Same thing happens with small tank cars, which at first glance appear to ride on enormous trucks.
