Re: Ultrascale Bespoke tyres

How tricky is it to remove the centres from new RTR locos? I've never tried, but some recent offerings look quite good - seems a shame to chuck 'em out..... I think "Porcy Mane" has done this on plastic-centred Hattons/Heljan diesel shunters, but for him it's second nature. Someone else t...

Possibly because retooling is expensive and the thing hasn't started turning a decent profit yet?

Re: P4 wheels centre outside boss

If it helps, I have occasionally ordered alternative axles from Ultrascale, who can turn them out relatively quickly, where an indented or bored face is required. All they ask is for the measurement over the wheel boss face, a matter of setting a wheel on either side of a btb gauge.

I used to close up the gap with a pair of pliers after inserting the top link. No falling out after that.

..... What is the price per set? H class: £42.50 per set Beattie WT: £37.50 per set The Beattie drivers are interesting as the outer circumference of the wheel centre protrudes slightly from the tyre face.
