Looking good Jay!
I must be slipping, I completely forgot you're selling these nice wheels and actually need some sets.
I have a half dozen or so OMI drives to convert, I'm certain at least 3 are from the latest run but I'm pretty sure some are from previous runs so I'll check out what I need and then order them.
Thank you,
John

John,

If they have ball bearings on the axles (in the gear box), they should be 3mm. If so the conversion should be fairly simple. Otherwise, it's a crap shoot.

Pretty much done with this one. Clean up a little bit of wiring and call it good. Thought I had QSI issues and made it far more complicated than need be. NMRA type plug was partially unplugging itself. On to the Alco, Baldwin, Sac North., etc. Less than two weeks to finish...ugh!

I just converted a first run Atlas SW to P:48 using one of Jay’s coverplate and NWSL wheelsets kits.

For the last five or so years I’ve been concentrating on researching and planning a early 1950s setting C&NW branchline layout in P:48, but in the meantime I want to do a small modern switching layout - which doesn’t require research since I was there.

The more extensive C&NW branch project will probably need to wait for retirement in a few years.

Ken, Start a new thread about your layout in planning! I'd follow!
