Since there is a Piko Vectron model, the axle diameter and possibly the gear could be the same as their BR 182 - so it may be a very easy swap of wheels to get a more correct wheel size.

I think I will get a Piko Vectron as the starting point for my initial ACS-64 model, thanks for the data so far.

As part of my 2017 New Years' resolution, I intend on getting a TT scale Vectron model and start the conversion process to ACS-64, or at least a close copy of one.

Now to figure out corresponding cars (Amfleet).
