Default Lorenz wheel dimensions

Does anyone know the wheel diameters for a 3hp Lorenz trolley?

Thanks in anticipation!

Daz, I'm sure you already know, but reproduction ironwork for Lorenz trolleys is available on the continent.

I'm making a trolley using wheels I have, but I'd like to get the axle heights about right just in case a proper set comes along in my 50 budget!

I've seen various wheels offered, but they seem to be for larger engines. Knowing diddly squat about these engines I was hoping there might be some knowledgeable types out there.

Ps, any chance a moderator could undo my numptiness and place this thread in a more appropriate section!!

Be hard to push in a straight line, one is so much smaller than the other...

Well that's something. If you build a pair of matching trolleys you could catch up with yourself at some point across the engine pen!!
