16mm Scale Steel Wheel Sets


Set of fours wheels as supplied in our “common carrier” kits

SKU: N/A Category:


These are the quality steel wheel sets (four wheels on two axles) that we supply in our “common carrier” kits.

Precision Machined

These wheels are precision CNC machined in England to give a smooth and reliable ride to your rolling stock. They have 2mm journals and correctly profiled treads and flanges (i.e. they are tapered and not “steam roller”)


Each wheel is mounted onto the axle via a precision machined nylon bush to provide an insulated wheelset if you use track power.

Available in both 32mm and 45 mm gauges ; 24mm in diameter.

Please note these are steel and not stainless steel wheels. Whilst this allows better paint adhesion if you choose to paint them, they will gain a fine layer of rust if you pack them away for the winter while still damp. If you don’t like an authentic rusty look we suggest you give them an occasional squirt of oil !
