HOn3 Passenger Truck x8 (6ft wheelbase)
alacolo34 Being a WP&Y HOn3 modeler I have purchased 8 of these trucks for a test and as suggested fitted Kadee wheelsets to them. However the Kadee wheelsets do not fit properly. Though it is acceptable that the recession for the axle points must be reamed to permit the necessary lateral play, it is not acceptable that the rims touch the connecting bars at the ends of the sideframes to such an extent that the wheels do not turn. When sanding these connecting bars down sufficiently to permit free rolling they get so thin that some break (this material is not very suitable for sanding). Removing these bars is not a solution either because due to the flexibility of the material the wheelsets occasionally pop out when rolling over a switch (turnout/point) when the trucks are mounted on a car weighted according to NMRA standards (I have tested that too). This design needs correction. Dieter Stehli
