So why don't Bachmann use traction tyres in their Castles and Merchant Navy's?

A question you'll have to ask them.

Folk grumble when they do have tyres (often users wreck them and then grumble - emphasis on the users, not Bachmann), and folk grumble when they do not, so they can't really please everyone.

The Merchant Navy doesn't need them so much as it's air smoothed casing provides a large volume to fill with chassis block to up the weight. I'm not sure they'd have lost much fitting them to the Castle though.

Cheers,
Alan
