I see on the Fox Valley website that their 33 and 36 inch wheels are back in stock! If you've been waiting now's the time, it usually takes a while when they sell out to restock

Do you know how wide the treads are? and flange height? The website says .720 pointed axles, I guess that fits Gold coast trucks? .....DaveB

The Fox Valley website is not very helpful about how to order the wheels. I emailed them with the question. Let's see what they answer.

Fox Valley Web site:

" We offer the TT wheels in 33" and 36" diameters in either 12 packs or 100 Packs. These were made from
customer suggestions. If you like what you see, tell us what you might like to see next!"

Maybe 40-inch loco wheels? Stub axled? Something other than brass, N/S or SS?

Yes! Preferably suitable to existing axle/gear combos. Being the most widely available I would go with Tillig axle diameter.

And what size might that be? 1mm, 2mm, 3mm? Curious minds. :think:

Not sure. I don't have anything to measure right now - it's all packed away.
