Walthers Bethgon wheel size
Author: OCtrainguy

I have an older six pack of Walthers Bethgon cars in Burlington Northern and one for BNSF.  They came with plastic wheels.  I am looking to upgrade to metal wheels.  The boxes don't have the wheel size listed on them.  I think they are 33" size, but when I asked a few friends, they told me 36".  I am thinking they might be okay running with 36", but not sure which one would be better.  Any thoughts or suggestions?

36" matches the prototype.

Walthers makes replacements with metal wheels with plastic or metals which are a good match for the sideframes.
