I don't know about just the wheels but Bachmann are now making the EggLiner and replacement motor blocks.
Same motor block as the Aristocraft FA, U-25 and RS-3.
If you can't get them local to your region Mike Kidman at Reindeer Pass is good to deal with. Reindeer Pass Railroad

Alright, it fell flat, but I thought U boats were submarines

Yes, but there must be another sort of U Boat
Quote from Wikipedia "The U25B (nicknamed U-Boat) was the first commercially successful domestic diesel electric road locomotive designed, built, and sold by General Electric after its split with the American Locomotive Company (Alco), a company dating back to the steam era." Aristocraft also made them by the thousand.

I must read too many magazines to know that there was a dismal called a U-boat.
