Detectable Wheel Sets
HO Scale Wheel Set

At The Signaling Solution, Inc. we stock HO wheels sets in the 33 inch diameter and 36 inch diameter sizes. These are very common and easily replaced. You can use one or two axels in a freight car or a passenger car with these detectable wheel sets. They are equipped with a small resistor to draw a very small current when the car is in a block that has signal with train detection in it. That way even if you park a car, the car is detected and your signals operate properly.

For more protection, you can put 2 axels per car so that even if the car happens to be straddling near a block boundary, both the blocks will show occupied. It also helps to have two axels such that there is twice as good a chance that you will get some current flow even if the tracks or the wheel are a little bit dirty.

So, we use North West short line wheel set and add the resistors ourselves. Thus, you get the best available wheel sets and axels to use and of course this gives you the kind of train detection that you need to make your signaling system work properly.

N Scale Detectable Wheel Set
 

At The Signaling Solution, Inc. we stock N wheels sets in the 33 inch diameter and 36 inch diameter sizes. The 33 are typically used on freight cars and the 36 inch diameters are used on passenger’s cars.

The other option that you have with the N scale is that there are 2 types of truck sizes, and one size of truck requires axels that are little bit longer than the other. So, we stock 2 different axel lengths and 33 and 36 diameter Wheels.

If you are using KTMDCAHM, Trix, Aurora or Atlas trucks, you would want to use the short axles and those would be our detectable wheel set DWSN33S or DWSN36S. If you are using trucks by Concor or Bockman, you would want to use long axles and that would be the DWSN33L or DWSN36L. And in that way you will get a perfect fit and the axles will rotate just as well as your original axles.
