Worsley Works 04 Diesel Shunter.
Geoff Helliwell reminded me that the Society axles were 1/8th in diameter but the spigots were 2mm.
The bonus to this is that when fitted the wheels are the correct distance apart- one less problem to deal with.
As can be seen, the wheels are a snug fit and the wheels run true.
I will fit the counterbalance weights to the rear axle as these need to be stuck or soldered in place bearing in mind that they need to be the same face distance as the wheels. Then fit the rest as normal one axle at a time.
