Me again !
I have a minitrix Flying Scotsman, unfortunately the traction tyres are missing, I have tried to locate new ones but I am not having much success, does anyone know of an alternative?

best regards Mike

Hi Mike,
At times minitrix traction tyres come up on ebay but go for good money .... i may have some new in the spares box not sure if they will fit the Flying Scotsman though.
I did read replacement of tyres can be a chore not the tyres themselves but the replacement of the valve gear correctly.

If i find the tyres i'll let you know.

Hi Upnick,
thanks for your prompt reply, yes iv'e seen them on ebay, I think the last pair went for £16 !! I still wonder if there is a way round them though, someway of filling the slots in the wheels maybe?

best regards Mike
