Re: Maindee East for sale

The Auction listing for Maindee East states "Passed", which I guess is auction speak for failed to achieve reserve. Bearing in mind the estimate was £300-£400 I'd say someone missed a bargain....

Methods for Removable Loco Wheelsets.

Hi All, (With apologies for anyone previously seeing this question on RMWeb....) When constructing a loco chassis with fixed axles (i.e. no compensation or springing) are there any methods for making the wheelsets (i.e. wheels still fitted to axles) removable from the frames? Whilst Markits wheels a...

Re: wheel Puller

On RMWeb recently Tony Wright mentioned that Markits do sell P4 axles if you ask, though not P4 profile wheels. It seems that there are some modellers happily using Markits 00/EM wheels & P4 axles for 18.83, modifying flangeways etc. to suit. Not that I'm suggesting such a thing, you understand....

Re: Sharman Wheels - P4 or EM Profile?

Many thanks Philip & Martin for your most helpful replies (and apologies for the delay in replying - Xmas chaos....). I've yet to compare the Sharman wheels to P4 wheels - but will do so as suggested. However, from your experiences it does look pretty certain that they are of EM profile (or at l...

Re: Sharman Wheels - P4 or EM Profile?

Hi Philip,

Many thanks; hopefully I've posted some images below - the Sharman wheel is on the right of each image.
The AG wheel is 23.2mm max. diameter, with the Sharman being 23.07mm max. diameter.

Sharman Wheels - P4 or EM Profile?

Hi, I have some Sharman 22.0mm wheels which I believe to be EM profile but may be P4 profile; when compared to some (new) Alan Gibson 00/EM profile wheels they measure out as follows: Alan Gibson: 2.31mm thick, with a flange thickness of 0.52mm Sharman: 2.15mm thick, with a flange thickness of 0.38m...
