Hi all,
Finished the freight/passanger depot this spring and have been adding a few
extras like figures, benches, packing crates, and baggage carts.

I built this cart a while back but didn't have the right size wheels so used some
smaller ones I had on hand. This week while at the National Narrow Gauge Convention
in Portland, Oregon I found some O scale wagon wheels that seemed to be just about
the right size. I changed them out today and here is the results.






The wheels may have a few tomany spokes but all in all they work pretty well.
Thanks for your time.
Rick Marty

Thanks guys,

The wheels are from McKenzie Iron & Steel Co.
Contact Bill Roy at;
541-688-0843 (Eugene,OR)
email [email protected]

I don't know the model number of the ones I used but they are
approx. 28mm diameter with 14 spokes. He also has some that are
25mm and 14 spoke that would work well.

He casts about a dozen different wheels for wagons in O scale.
These are the thinner profile ones that were used on buckboards
and light wagons not the heavy ones used on freight wagons.

If you contact him be sure not to mention my name
so he won't charge you extra.
Later
Rick Marty

but what happened here? looks like a normal thread now.
I took care of it. In addition to banning the user and deleting his post, there were four other posts referring to the spam which I also deleted. Additionally, there were at least 20 users today waiting for approval (bots by the look of them), which I also banned. This site appears to use some sort of "black list" for known spammers, matching IPs, domain names, and other criteria on known spammers. These folks never make it past the gate, are intercepted, and promptly banned every day. And there have been a couple hundred in the past few weeks.
