Hello all,

Just seen on the Tgauge.com facebook that large driving wheels for steam are for sale! They can be found here:

Can't wait to see what people get up to with these!

I ordered some of the wheels to experiment with, they look great! I am thinking on a model like sjrashid's J3 Hudson the wheels might be able to be attached to the 35.5 motorized chassis. The hard part will be making all of the connecting rods! I wish that TGauge.com offered them for sale as well.

Joe.

Man I haven't been on here for a while.
I need to order some to experiment with my Flying scotsman.
Just not sure how to approch it, so many ideas in my head.
Check out my Shapeways store for T-gauge stuff.

I received my new steam wheels in the mail! They look great. However, I am not sure if attaching them to the 35.5mm chassis will work. I am planning on designing a Pacific locomotive for them. I have a few 3.2mm motors that may work for a thinner chassis, but fitting the gear reduction into it will take some work. Does anyone have a diagram of the gears used in the 35.5 chassis?

Hi jerrybigcat,

Do you have a link to the website, as I am having trouble finding it.
