I will wait for some more opinion 's to appear - then try some - narrow would be the better option for pulling - less contact area - but wide adds stability ???? Lorry you could lose your marbles with all these problems !!! I'll get some track down and have a play !

Webbo  -uve gone and done it -i've ordered a packet of 12 metal wheelsets to try out -two reasons -this is no1 -


Saw these two for 12 -bargain -but everybody knows roundhouse bogies are :poop:and up popped the dreaded standard n coupler ! They are also plastic bodies -so have no weight -and don't travel well either -new micro trains bogies and metal wheels will help plus I'll weight the container that travels in there -speaking of which pme118 on ebay has various containers for sale 40'/45',48' at 5.50 a pair -10% for multiple buys -there by deluxe inno so not bad stuff !



Off the same man I also got a couple of wagons I'm gonna bash up and turn into the works rubbish bins -brand new still wrapped up and ready to go -just require name red leaded out and some rust adding -perfect -inc postage containers and wagons cost 35 !!!



Any way I'm on my knees begging -has anybody got four(4)spare micro trains 1039 pins I can beg, borrow ,steal, buy at enhanced price  :laugh3: they only suit roundhouse/ mdc gear and are like hens teeth here !

Back to the metal wheels saga -been playing on the test track with my metal shod kato bethgon coal trucks and the e&c shop leaders and tails ( because there microtrains coupler as standard ) and there struggling to keep up with the kato -especially the tail -so I'll try a conversion and see if there better ?
Awaiting the last four locos back from the weathering man - which I'll post asap and then this thread will close finally-for those who are interested -i've gone to forum - layout construction -Crooked Creek. Hope to see old and new there -starting with the baseboards -be posting soon ! TTFN
Regards

Neil
