The final ( I hope ) condition of track shedding, caused be the small 12mm bolts in the KTS This allowed the road wheels to ride over the guide teeth and de-rail.

Each 12mm bolt was replaced with a 20mm bolt and the nuts have been filed round to ease contact with the wheels, initial tests show much improvement.

My very simple method of making metal disks. First I rough cut 100mm circles out of an old stainless cabinet using a 9inch grinder. Then slowly rotated them at right angles to my bench grinder.

The disks are sandwiched and glued in-between plywood wheels giving me lightweight and hard wearing (and very inexpensive) wheels.
