Hi Chris, Do you think it would be possible to turn down Tillig loco flanges in a similiar manner? I'd like to build some code 55 track with HP sized frog flangeways but I'll need some kind of decent running loco eventually. Does anyone make replacement wheels with smaller flanges for for Tillig drives? Maybe a job for NWSL? .......dave

If you are able, it would be great to see some pictures, Andy.

NWSL will do wheelsets with or without gears for a small set up fee if they do not have to do any machining. I have some (HO) 26/.088 wheelsets geared for their auxiliary gear box to repower some HP E-units. I had intended to use their Flea ll, but it's not available now. I have made some 1:1 transfer gearboxes so I can use the 16 x 30 can motor instead.

Welcome to TT Nut Graandpa!
I'd be interested in hearing more about your E unit project. Could you start a new topic and let us know more? I've got a couple that could use a little update!
