Does anyone know if it is possible to get a spoked wheel version of LGB 67403, not necessarily from LGB but same wheel size.
Ball Bearing Wheel Sets, 2 Pieces | Märklin
It's the electrical contacts feature I need as well as being metal wheels.
I know there are electrical contact sets LGB 63193 but they only fit certain bogie types not 2 axle long wheel base cars.

I could hack these and the bogies around to make them fit but that's a last resort; I'd rather use solid wheels if that is the only option.
This is to provide track powered lighting to a 2 axle passenger car with spoked wheels.
Before anyone suggests it I don't want to use battery power, or wires from loco or adjacent carriage.
Thanks.

BTW they do exist as my RhB baggage car has them factory fitted, but I can't find them available separately.

Interesting, I do not know if anyone is a Trainline dealer since Glendale closed. Is there one?
I think Kent Garden Railway stock some TL45 but I suspect I will need to go to a German retailer to get these.

BTW I do look to see if there was a spare part wheel set for the RhB wagon mentioned (LGB 33403) but a) there were none in stock on the Maerklin spares site and b) I'm not convinced they were metal wheels with contacts.

Thanks Andrew that's the spare part I was looking for and it shows the contacts. Great stuff.

EDIT: Unfortunately this part E288921 is not available anywhere. :-(

2ND EDIT: I've ordered the TL45 equivalent mentioned above from modell-land

The TL45 wheel set arrived today. Not bad as I only ordered it on Monday evening and it arrived Friday lunchtime. Good service from modell-land. The postage was "only" €9.99 so not too bad for tracked DHL delivery as I ordered a few other spare parts at the same time.

They are a very good match for the LGB wheels they are replacing. Same spoke design. Bit different from the LGB equivalent in that there are (very thin) wires already attached which should make installation a little easier. Picture below. Part description and number is Doppelspeichenradsatz (2 Stück) mit Stromführung Train Line 93067321. You get two wheel sets in a packet.
