Hobbytrain H23924 Laeqrss 545 Wheelset
« on: January 22, 2020, 07:16:28 PM »
I need a new wheelset, to be precise one axle with two wheels, for a Hobbytrain H23924 Laeqrss 545 auto transport wagen. The other two axles are still there but the centre axle has disappeared.
Yes, I tried Hobbytrain but they could not help. I think this model is out of production.
The wheel diameter, over the flats (not the total diameter over the flanges) is 3.96mm, while the axle length is 13.30mm. Can anybody help me?

Tricky.   4mm diameter is small. Not as small as the Fleischmann rolling road wagons though!

I did wonder about the smaller wheels on old Roco US wagons but even they are over 4.5mm by the look of it.  I've had a hunt around the German spare parts sites and not had any luck.

I ordered two of the Fleischmann rolling road wheelsets, unfortunately the wheel diameter, across the flats, are in this case too small! I was tempted to fit one axle set anyway as I thought the wagon could still run, but the axle is about a millimeter too long. One of the guys at the club works for a light engineering firm so I'm tempted to ask him if he can turn down the axle length to fit. This would mean that the wagen could still run, even though the ride height, at this point, would be slightly low!
A tip came in this evening: try for Kato spares RhB coach bogies. Would anybody out there who is into Kato Swiss meter gauge stock care to measure a coach bogie wheel set for me? The axle length and the wheel diameter across the flats.
