36" Flat Back Wheel Sets,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bachmann Trains 36" Flat Back Wheel Sets (12 per card) (Toy)
They worked great. So much so, that I ordered two more cards of them. The plastic wheels that come on the Bachmann cars aren't even round, nor do they have centered axles. These metal wheels reduce rolling friction and lower the center of gravity of the cars because they weigh more than the origional plastic wheels. That is good. While you are ordering replacement parts, get some extra car couplers made by someone other than Bachmann. Some aftermarket couplers have a tiny, real metal coil spring in the coupler while the couplers on the Bachman cars use a plastic leaf spring that doesn't return all the way, causing cars to un-couple when the train is in reverse. Also, don't buy Bachmann's switching track unless you plan on switching the track when the train is going real slow. The Bachmann switching track de-rails the train at medium and high speeds. I am not happy with the quality of Bachmann products - even as a child's toy. But.Ttese replacement metal wheels are a great improvement to the Bachmann train cars.
