update on metal wheel sets
- I did find Marklin metal wheels that can be purchased seprately. Now i
just need to find out what trucks and couplers go with which wheels.
Micro Trains has passenger trucks # 004 02 040. Whether or not the
Marklin metal wheels # 700810 will fit and roll freely is debatable.
Once you get the trucks and wheels together in an acceptable
combination then you still need to install pick-ups and this will
add more friction to an already tight fit of the MT truck and the
Marklin wheels. Richmond Controls has pick-ups or you may want to
think about an alternative, such as a battery powered system for
lighting your passenger train which has the advantage of eliminating
the flickering associated with track powered lighting.
