I am not sure whether they were a big mover for NWSL but somehow I doubt it. If they were, you might ask the SEM guy in Australia how he does his, he makes something rather similar at 26".
Still it is a pity as they were the only 24" wheel in existence that might look plausible under a 'regular' railway wagon.
If anyone has a few pair they do not want, by all means contact me.
