All of the ore car diagrams in the 1948 edition of the Great Northern Freight Car Diagrams show 33" wheels.

Subject: [STMFC] GN ore jennies

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???
Thanks for any help, Otto Kroutil
