    My first attempt at this was to just pull out the wheels on the existing axles. Worked ok in straight lines, but not curves. There was not enough grab on the axles.

    I then replaced axles and wheels with Romfords, and now works fine.

    The loco is geared on every axle, unlike the older panniers, etc, so there is a little more work to be done; but easy enough.
