Ho-Ho-Ho and December is knocking on the door! Post your wants or needs here and maybe someone will have what you need, or perhaps you will have something that's being sought. Please be prepared to pay for shipping or purchase if necessary. Let's all make an effort to keep requests updated as to status.
My recent activity with some old MU-1 or 1.5 as Old Timer explained revealed someone put 33" wheels in a dummy truck. This really goofed up the coupler height.
The wheels I need are .460" in diameter. They pick up on one side via a metal wheel and have a plastic wheel on the other side. They have pinpoint ends and ride in the metal sideframes.
I thought I could take a standard Mantua axle and do some work with different wheels but I have failed everywhere. The newer Mantua wheel sets use about a 1/8" axle and the ones I need are the tiny type similar to those used in the freight trucks.
I need 2 wheel sets if someone has them or maybe a fresh outlook on what I can use to straighten this mess up.

wks: Whitey is his name. Short for The White Mountains. Of course he is a black crow.

rbturner: Hey, Danger Man; you had better batten down the hatches this morning. A storm is coming. (Don't forget to wear your mask)

JNXT 7707: Danger Man is not afraid of any storm. Neither is Whitey.

umpdan31: I get it now. If the black Hills of South Dakota has a white crow, is his name Blackie? (Nothing racial intended. I'm talking about a bird. When I was young, we had a black Cocker Spaniel named Blackie.)
