I have the same question, although I do know that the Bachmann Blue Ribband
models and the new designed from scratch Hornby models are fitted with
suitable RP25 wheels.
As for the rest I don't know........I reckon the Lima wheel flanges are too
All this stuff runs fine on Peco Code 75, including Lima - try it for
yourself rather than believing one of the classic urban myths of our hobby.
You *might* find the odd old Lima item that has flanges that are too deep,
but I never have - and for my sins I've had absolutely shedloads of it over
the years. All of this:
is being built
with Code 75.
Even if you did find the odd old item of Lima stock that didn't work, which
would make more sense - swapping a couple of wheels or redesigning the whole
layout to accomodate them?
The Bachmann Blue Riband models certainly do. From personal experience I
can vouch for the Crab, Std 5, Std 4, Std 4MT Tank, Ivatt 2-6-2T and the
Maunsell N Class as well as the Mk1 coaches and lots of the goods stock.
I can only speak for the more modern Hornby stuff, but the Black 5, Stanier
8F, Merchant Navy and West Country models run perfectly on it.
I wear the cheese. It does not wear me.
You mention using Peco Code 75, that'll be no problem. Lima and other coarse
flanges really only have trouble on the tighter standards of C&L and
Exactoscale track, where the chairs are higher and hence tend to foul the
deeper flanges and have more difficulty through the finescale pointwork.
