While searching for suitable drivers for a GWR 2721 open cab pannier tank I came accross Scale Link loco wheels, on the South Eastern Finecast website. To all intents and purposes they are similar to the well known Romford / Markits RP25 profile self quartering wheels with square axle ends.
Has anybody got any experience of using these wheels on an EM gauge loco? Are they to the Society approved profile?
Bearing in mind that at the moment Ultrascale are not taking any orders for wheels, if these SCALE LINK wheels are suitable for EM, it would be good if they were made more widely known about.
(The GWR 2721 pannier tank has 4′, 71/2″ wheels with 16 spokes – most GWR pannier tanks had wheels with14 spokes, which are available from Gibson.)
