Wow! that has to be what one calls the labor of love. But it looks like it does make a difference. Nice work Harold thanks for posting it.
Question of interest, just how much time is involved in filing the axle down to fitting size?

It takes very little time to take the excess off the axle. Only about .025 needs to be removed from each side. Even taking the pictures it only took about a half hour to do the whole job.

Even the real V&T locomotives don't look good with the small tender wheels.
