PBA Tiger Wagon - Kernow

Morning,

Question time again! Has anyone on here had a look at or converted one of the PBA wagons? I've not bought any yet, but will be doing so in due course.

Re: Heljan IWB Vans

I'm now thinking about fitting brass bearings. I would support Flymo's suggestions but on the vehicles I have done I have not fitted any bearings.

Re: Hornby CDA

I'm off to Toton all week! Maybe I could make a detour via Gilberdyke...

I think I'll pick my wheels up at York show and give it a go over the easter weekend.

Hornby CDA

Hello all, I'm new to P4. I'm waiting for my ultrascale wheels to arrive for my 37s. In the meantime, I'm wondering which wheels I need to drop in to the Hornby CDA wagon? HAs anyone converted any of these before? Cheers for any info.
