1 1/2" scale locomotive drive wheel pattern     makes a light and heavy counterweight wheel

This pattern is from the late Richard Thomas collection.  It is a drive wheel pattern that was part of the group lot of patterns I purchased from him in 1999.  He had a fleet of locomotives during his hobby years.  This is a pattern that was used for
some of the locomotives he built. Makes a light and heavy counterweight wheel.  Pattern probably around 25+ years old.  Whoever bought the remainder of the Richard Thomas locomotive patterns might need this wheel pattern to help complete their collection.  This pattern weighs in at 20lbs.  I never had the time to introduced this wheel into the product line.  It has been in storage for 16 years.

Basic dimensions of the wheel pattern are:

Wheel pattern #5
8.25" OD rough tire
8.82" OD rough flange
.88" rough width (thickness)
add additional .31" thickness for the raised portion of counterweight on heavy wheel
add additional .62" thickness for the raised portion of counterweight on light wheel
appears to be around 1.875" crankpin distance center axle to center pin (+/- 1/8" difference would probably work)
