Possibly;
TT-West -should- be getting some samples of an MTB 70-ton plain-bearing truck shortly.

I may be wrong but I believe that the GC wheels were Tillig sourced.

Did anybody try "Mueller" wheelsets from Germany?
They are 7mm (7.5mm, 7.7 mm and 8.3 versions are also available)

They look quite close to GC ones.

Wrong...
According to the Versers, the 36in and 33in GCR wheelsets were contracted through a US importer, and produced in Korea.

What ever happened to Fox Valley Models' promised production of TT wheels over a year ago (or was it even longer?)? They list TT wheels on their website, but it is not actually a "live" link, click on it and nothing happens...

I've got some of the Fox Valley Models wheels to use when I modified HOn3 archbars. I just took a look at their website. In red letters under TT scale it states "------Building------". Whether that means they're building that page or the trucks themselves. Perhaps a e-mail to them would clarify what's going on.

"I've got some of the Fox Valley Models wheels to use when I modified HOn3 archbars."

What size axles do they come with? Are they 33 inch wheels? Are they made to fit any specific TT scale trucks? ...DaveB
