Narrow Gauge Metal Wheel Sets
$4.25 per axle, unplated steel
$5.80 per axle, Nickel, or Black Oxide plating

These wheel sets were originally designed for use on our custom built 1:20.3 scale narrow gauge freight cars.  We felt that wheels with a more prototypical appearance, and lower flange height were needed for our rolling stock.

We have now expanded our line to offer these improved scale wheel sets in five different diameters that cover the three major large scale, narrow gauge sizes (1:24, 1:22.5, and 1:20.3).  These wheel sets are offered in both "O" Gauge, and Gauge #1.  Wheel sets are packaged four (4) axles per bag ($17.00 - unplated steel, and $23.20 - Nickel, or Black Oxide plating, plus shipping - see below).

Although these wheel sets were designed specifically for narrow gauge, they have been used successfully on 1:29 scale, and 1:32 scale standard gauge railroads.  Most standard gauge modelers use either our #2, or #3 size wheel sets.

The chart below shows size, scale, equivalent wheel diameter, and actual tire diameter.
Features:
    
     1. Flange height has been reduced to improve appearance without sacrificing performance.
     2. Design of the wheel face is based on narrow gauge prototypes.
     3. The wheel tread and flange are tapered, and have a fillet between them, as on the prototype.

    
4. Heavier metal wheels improve performance over plastic wheels, and lower the center of gravity of
         your cars.
     5. All wheel sets are double insulated.
     6. These wheel sets are compatible with all commercially available track and trucks, and have been
         tested on Code 172 rail through Code 332 rail extensively.
     7. Each wheel set is individually inspected and tested for gauge, and alignment.
     8. Add $6.50 shipping (covers up to 12 wheel sets, or 3 bags).
     9. California residents add 7.25% state sales tax.
