Wheels of the Locomotive
« on: July 03, 2012, 02:34:50 PM »
Hello dear train family

Question:  ;)

Who manufactures the wheels an the axis for the locomotive?

We've calculated that the standart wheels of the wagon are to big for the Locomotive.

We propose that the wheels diameter change from 50mm to 40mm.

Please answer as fast as you can!!!

Hello,
John O'Neill [IE] here.

I am the representative of the wheels group.
Our job was to design the wheels for the carriages to fit the concept of the "common undercarriage".
As far as I am aware the loco wheels are a matter for the loco groups.
Each group has the job of desigining and making the complete locomotive, including the wheels.
In our group (2) the wheels and axles will be made by one school as decided at the meetings.
I hope this answers your question.

John

Hello,

The Romanian team will do the wheels, but without the axis, just as discussed in Slovenia. The diameter will be 50mm, also as discussed during our last meeting.

Hello

We've a problem:
Tonny wrote this post in the forum: <<Is it possible to change the distance between the axes from 45 to 44 mm?>>

- We know, the distance between the axes has a distance of 44mm know.
- You would manufacture the wheels with a dieameter of 50mm. That means, the distance between the axes must be bigger than 50mm. Otherwise the wheels collide!!!

I propose, to change the wheel diameter from 50mm to 40mm. Is it possible for you to manufacture it until the meeting in Kuopio Finnland?

Thanx and greez

Hello,
I make wheels (bronze) with a diameter of 40 mm for our meeting in Kuopio.

Will our locomotive have 4 pairs of wheels?

Hello!

We will bring 8 wheels. But we don't know who will make the axis.

See you in Kuopio.

Greetings,
