Thanks Woodie-

Yeah, the N-scale trucks look too small.
I agree the HOn3 trucks look too small as well, but it might be the only easy choice.

I would really like to find a way to create O-scale size wheels
(like 3/4" diameter to represent 36") gauged to work on On18 (HOn30).

I've been looking on Shapeways,
there's a few people making some trucks (Tebee included)
but they all seem to be HO-ish size (or full-size standard gauge O scale)

The whole world of wheel sets/side frames/trucks is hard to decipher.

It would be great if someone would make a narrow-gauge truck/wheelset in O scale for 9mm gauge.
The backwoods/critter/mining/logging crowd would rejoice.

Seems like there's a lot of On30 modelers out there who are also doing On18 areas on their layouts.
