Hi Ian,

The 12.5mm diameter wheels you need are those available in Hornby pack R8096.As Jim S-W points out 3-hole wheels are wagon wheels,so the plain discs would be more suitable.
Unfortunately the design of these models is a work of pure Hornby fiction,being based not on a real prototype,but to fit on the old Tri-ang era derived brake van underframe,complete with the overscale buffer height,so fitting 14mm diameter wheels [which would normally be more appropriate for a coach] would only raise the buffer height,adding to the inaccuracy...
