Fox Valley Wheels Swap

I got some Fox Valley Models metal wheels to try on some of my micro trains wheels with the large pizza cutter flanges. First impression is that they look great but there is a bit of a height difference when the Fox Valley wheels are fitted but is not unmanageable. I think that for general use they would be a great addition just for operating and visual appeal but would highly recommend them for adding weight to lighter rolling stock and top heavy stuff as well.

Some types of USA rolling stock use 38" wheels instead of 36" wheels. Maybe this is why there is a height difference.
