As part of my clean out of unfinished projects in my cellar, I have for give away two sets of 2 3/8" = 1' scale 4 3/4" gauge wheel sets (wheels mounted on axles--no side frames or bolsters--journal areas not machined).  You would have to pay shipping or pick up. One set (eight wheels mounted on four axles) represents wheels about 20" in diameter (3 3/4 actual inches)and the other (eight wheels mounted on four axles) about 18" in diameter (3 1/4 actual inches).  The treads are two different widths but wide for 1" scale track.  They represent many hours of work.

How heavy would you estimate the total weight to be?

bperch replied:
The total weight is 55 pounds.  They could be shipped in four one price priority boxes for about $10 a box.  If you are serious, I could get an exact price.  The post office is the best fway for me.

Thanks Bernie.
Just wanted an Idea in case I or someone else wants them. I don't have anything like that yet but there is always a time to start.
