Has anyone tried adding a flanged drive wheel instead of the blank wheel on the LGB Crocodile locos? Will the plastic drive side rods handle the added stress? Just wanting to make a more realistic loco. Other locomotives have longer wheel bases with all flanged drive wheels as steam locos.

Should work, what will you increase your minimum diameter / radius to? (when replying please indicate radius or diameter)
I have one slip switch which has R2 radius, but my yard switches are all R3 and main line switches are R5 as are most large curves on my layout are 5' radius. Only problem is I haven't been able to locate a couple of replacement (additional) sets of wheels yet.

Finally took time to search the LGB parts web site and found the part numbers for my needed flanged drive wheels. On order now. Eager to see how they will work out.
