<< The usual problem w/ those roco diesels is the two piece tread/wheel
 assemblies coming apart ( they have a metal tread piece press fit on a
 plastic inner wheel/axle). I've never had any luck gluing these back
 together so they weren't prone to wobble ( there is a word for it but
 I can't think of it). I was in a club that had bought a case of 38's and
 40's from Hobbies for Men as club engines and we ran the wheels >>
Luckily I haven't had that problem with any of the 12 of my Roco Geeps the 23
years that I have owned them! I did however have to repoace a rear truck on a
GP40 - cannibalizing a GP38 for the part. Now that they're being manufactured
again, I have sent for and received 4 new trucks for parts from ATLAS - Not
Roco, believe it or not!
