It's just a matter of fact that every manufacturing process has "rejected" parts ... making wheelsets is no different. These 33" and 36" wheels have injection molded centers with slightly off-axis axle holes that cause a little wobble. Not suitable for rolling stock but PERFECT for static display, such as flat car loads, part of your wreck train or just stacked around the car shop.
Each wheelset contains (2) 33" or 36" bright Nickel-plated wheels pre-gauged onto telescoping brass tubing "axles", styrene tubing to simulate bearings and a sprue of (10) molded bearing caps (2 styles).
*** Affordably priced at only $1.50/wheelset ***
Kit No. 64-TK-33WS ... $15.00 (10 wheelsets w/ 33" wheels)
Kit No. 64-TK-36WS ... $15.00 (10 wheelsets w/ 36" wheels)
(Supply will vary since the goal is NOT to make rejected parts!)

Bolsters and sideframes include locating "posts" to easily position springs ... spring load keeps them in place ... no glue required.
