Tyre Details - Table

ONE PACK BOUGHT BY GF.

 

Traction tyres - generic OO type.

These are made from the same cream coloured material as the type above, but have a slightly larger diameter. These are brand new traction tyres which are suitable for many OO gauge diesel locomotives and tender-driven steam locos.

      Some feedback about the generic OO tyres: "Great price, fit Airfix 4f & Mainline Cl 45.", "Great for hornby 25 37 47 43 hst 91 very happy 100% Recommended. thank you.","Many thanks for kindly sending up the traction tyres. I've tried several varieties, and these ones are by far the best." One long-standing customer reports that their stretchiness also makes them excellent for some Lima and Airfix tender-driven locos and diesels.....Feedback from another is "what great tyres they are. They fit the Lima railcar and type 33 bogies perfectly." Also, “I coupled a train of 10 Triang/Hornby coaches including 3 from the 1960's which are notoriously heavy and unwieldy, onto a H0 Lima class 33 chassis fitted with these tyres and with the SMALL ballast weight. It dragged them round the track as though they weren't there. Now that's what I call traction.”....Also “Hi. You may recall I bought some of these tyres several months ago and left the second comment above. (re Lima). I have subsequently fitted one of these tyres to an Airfix (made by Bachmann) CPR Jupiter 4-4-0 wild west loco with 16mm driving wheels. There was still some capacity left for even larger wheels. Whatever compound they're made of its stretchiness is superior to any others I've tried. Hope this is useful. Regards”....Another comment: “just to let you know the traction tyres have arrived safely and are as good as the last lot I purchased. Don't know how my Lima locos would manage without them. Thank you for a great service and product.”

"Thanks. Product arrived in good condition this morning. Good to see my 45 year old Lima N gauge diesel running successfully again."

"Thankyou for the tyres. They fit my Lima class 31 well."

"Hi, I recently bought a set of n gauge diesel traction tyres. Just to let you know that I have changed the tyres this afternoon and it has made my lima deltic a totally different locomotive. It is at this very moment pulling 16 coaches with very little effort and a good turn of speed. Many many thanks,"

"Just received traction tyres and they fit my Lima class 55 Deltic perfectly so thanks very much for your help"

"Bought a set of traction trees for my lima Cl 86s. both now running like a dream. Excellent value for money."

From a different purchaser: "Lima class 86 is running very nicely now, it pulled 8 coaches with ease, have not tried any more than 8 yet... " and then "It has improved it immensely, tried it with 10 coaches and it still pulled very well, no slipping at all!".

Then finally "I have decided to do all my minitrix class 47s with the tyres now, and my other lima trains too, so impressed I was with the Lima 86 I did recently". Also "Hi, thanks. These tyres work a treat, I m using them on my Lima n gauge class 31 s...of which I have quite a few".

HORNBY DUBLO SERVICE SHEETS and EAGLE CUTAWAY DRAWINGS. You can click here  to go to a page elsewhere on my site where you can find useful reference material:

 

All the Hornby Dublo Service Sheets are available for you to copy - save on your computer

or print them out - if you don't have the excellent Hornby Dublo companion book (Foster). 

 

Also, the "Eagle" comic had many really interesting big drawings of all sorts of railway operations in the 1950's, just the right vintage for Hornby Dublo. I have taken lots of photos of these, and, since they don't appear to be anywhere else on the internet, have published them as well. They show how the locomotives, equipment and operations worked in a straightforward way, usually using cutaway drawings. If you haven't seen them before, I

hope they give you as much fun as they did me.

 

These are all large and detailed images, you will find them all by following the above link.

 

 

** Equivalent item note (Several equivalent items are usually available). - in most cases, the exact item in the photograph will be the item supplied. However, in the case of small pickup components, screws, etc, one is normally so similar to another that there is no point in photographing them separately. Where marked, an equivalent item will be supplied rather than the exact one shown. Photographs of the specific item to be supplied will be happily supplied on request.
