tinplate wheels for a mamod

Post by Scrat » Tue Jan 23, 2024 9:49 am

I have a very old and much modified Mamod loco.
She has only very small flanges and derails on my tinplate track, even it it is completely level and straight.
So I am looking for Wheelsets with proper profile for O-gauge tinplate tracks.

Can anyone help?

If you have the original diecast Mamod wheels with those useless tiny square-shaped flanges, you can get aftermarket machined wheels with proper flanges. I haven't owned a Mamod in almost a decade, but suppliers like DreamSteam and Roy Wood come to mind.

Alternatively, you could find someone to re-machine your existing wheels..
