Hi Ben
Haha, OK now I see. That would be a problem. When I was modeling in O gauge I had the opposite problem, everything came gauged at 5 feet and we have to change them to standard gauge by narrowing them :>) ......dave

I have no doubt that FVM would do a nice product though, Dave, you ought to follow up with them and see what they'd do for TT. They made their name in niche markets like finescale N.


36" wheel

Hi Guys,

I was fooling around with the 3D CAD program this afternoon and drew these up in about 10 minutes. I used data from the NMRA.org for back to back and check gauge dimensions. Total wheel width is .064". The flange is just over .018" deep by .020" wide. The axle length is 17.78mm (I drew this before I saw this post) and the axle diameter is 1.5mm.


PS - I can change the axle length to 18.5mm
