I have around 10 of these all fitted with metal wheels otherwise they have a tendencey to derail if backed over reverse curves. The original couplings seem to break easily.
They respray well, even for me!

Les,
Worth having a look for 'self-adhesive wheel weights' on the web..

You can get these in a grey finish, and are very easy to fit. - Experiment with the strips lose first, then secure, once you have worked our how much weight you need to add.

PhilP,
A great idea - much better than lead sheet.
Regards,
Les

I've seen some Zenner wheels on Amazon.
They seem to be 3mm metal axle, plastic wheel and metal tyres, and the price seems competative
Does anyone know anything about them i.e.are they a straight swap for the Newqida ones?

Bachmann ones are a perfect fit if you can source them.
