S7 wheels from Peartree Engineering
SCALE 7 WHEELS
I have during the past couple of years had cause to purchase several sets of S7 wheels made by Peartree Engineering and I have been impressed with both the quality and value for money. The current range covers a number of variations of both wagon and carriage steel wheels fitted on steel axles, complete with insulation and chemical blackening
.At the January Bristol 'O' Gauge Show I asked proprietor Malcolm Fisher if he planned to produce some S7 diesel wheels and axles, because I currently have a Heljan diesel that I want to convert to S7. I could of course just set the existing wheels up in my lathe and turn them to S7 standards, however, I would like to retain the standard wheel sets just in case I want to re-convert this, or any other converted diesel locomotive in the future, especially when it might provide flexibility for any possible future re-sale.
