This correspondence provoked me to dig out a collection of Dapol wagons, including 4 milk tanks, others being grain, grampus and batch of HD ventilated vans fitted to Dapol chassis.

I have to say I have never noticed derailment problems with any of them, but took the opportunity to fit Hornby wheels to two of the milk tanks with a view to giving all 4 a good run up and down and seeing if there was any difference - none. All behaved perfectly (code 100 track).

Back to backs seem to all be 14.4mm, no knife edge flanges. Only odd one had stub axles fitted into plastic sleeve at 14.2mm - oldest one in mauve box. Certainly not disposed to spending cash rewheeling any others. Ex-original Airfix 2/- wagons circa 1960 have all been fitted with metal wheels to improve track cleanliness; I've not built any Dapol kits.
