New HO scale Stanton power trucks by NWSL

The correct size power trucks is the 8'-6" wheelbase with 33" wheels
to be used with our MU models.  If you go slightly oversized at
9'-0" WB, the drives feature a larger, more powerful motor.

We have an adaptor
available to modify any of our existing models to use these trucks
in place of the RDC drives that many are set up for.

These drives are all special order, lead time can be up to six weeks,
which is dependant upon NWSL.

We can order any size drive that you would like that NWSL produces.  

Here is a link to their website.

Please leave a note as to which size drive you would like.

and are designed to repleace existing wheels on Bowser
mechanisms to match up with models that require 28" wheels
(item # 9008)
Price: $5.99 (8 half-axles for one model)


We carry wheels by NWSL.
These are available in HO
28" for Chicago and Boston models
and 33" for most commuter models
that require a flush axle wheelset.
They feature: 
 Nickel - Silver
  .088" wheel thickness for a better appearance.
As well as 33" wheels in N scale.
Wheels come in sets of eight (for two cars).

Due to a price increase by NWSL, we had to raise our prices on these wheels.
List price is $11.95 for both HO and N scale

We will continue offer these wheels as a convenience for our customers.
These wheels are not stocked by us and are ordered as necessary.
As such, we require that you purchase them in sets of eight axles or enough
for two cars, the price added to cart reflects this price.

Since these are a special order, shipment time can be as long as ten
weeks, possibly longer as we will ship them as soon as they are
received from NWSL. They can arrive in as little as two weeks,
this is out of our control and wheel orders can not be canceled for
any reason once the order has been placed.
