SD70 wheel regauging
- Hi all, as I've just received my MTL turnouts, I've
also noticed that my wonderful AZL SD70 have a trend
to derail while proceeding accross frog and
As I've purchased a MTL track gauge I've noticed, like
others before myself, that my SD70 wheel gauge is a
little bit narrow and need to be widened.
So I'm looking after the experience of those who have
already done it (I think to you Lajos Thek <wink>).
How did you proceed? Did you simply use a jewellery
screwdriver? Isn't there a risk of bending or even
worth, twisting the wheel and/or axle doing this? Or
did you take these beauties appart in order to have a
direct access to both the lower side and upper side of
the trucks and wheelset? I'm not very enthusiastic
about taking appart these jewels....
BTW every input is welcome here!
