Where to buy wheelsets?

Post by Scrat » Sat Jun 03, 2023 10:32 am

I am planning to build a driving truck that matches my TIGER.

The idea is to have a bogie wagon with both bogies looking like RCH chassis and two bodies (a 5 plank and a covered van) on a common frame.
This will give the riding quality of a bogie wagon and not spoil the look.

Where can I buy spoked wheelsets, about 8cm diameter, suitable for passenger hauling and with the correct GL5 profile?

Yorkshire Wagon Co is probably your best bet for castings. Slaters do nice ones, but they have nylon wheels (steel tyre) so may not be suitable for passenger carrying.
