Has anyone tried the micro trains metal wheels for micro trains trucks? I’ve had good experiences with Fox Valley Models and Intermountain metal wheels but never tried the MT ones.

Hey Steve, I never used them but I have used Bachmann's metal wheels as replacements on Tyco and Life-Like cars. They work great for me.


Hi Steve,

I tired them, liked the look but found the small flange (scale) were not real functional. Track work becomes critical, they wanted to pick the frogs in the turnouts. You're better off sticking with the Kadee standard wheel sets.
