CAST IRON WHEEL CASTINGS
for SAR 4-8-2 class 15F including an 8 wheel bogie tender

at 1:24,   ½" : 1ft scale

A full set with drivers 'left and right handed' consists of 4 x H103 leading wheels, 1 x H250 and 1 x H 363 driven and 3 x H251 and 3 x H364 coupled driving wheels, 2 x H332 trailing and 8 x H332 tender wheels.

A full set with all drivers 'left handed' consists of 4 x H103 leading wheels, 2 x H250 driven and 6 x H251 coupled driving wheels, 2 x H332 trailing and 8 x H332 tender wheels.

Notes:
'Handing': There is a concensus (in 2018) that the drivers should be handed, with balance weights differently positioned for drivers on each side of the loco - supported by some photographs. This may not have applied to all locos, and apparently not to the one operating loco remaining in SA (which is all 'left handed').

Disc trailing and tender wheels. I first made patterns for the 15F from a published drawing by Ian Beattie. It showed trailing and tender wheels at 2' 10" diameter with 10 spokes. I have seen a photograph of a 15F trailing wheel as a disc wheel, but have not come across any information to support the 2' 10" wheels having spokes. If you require 2' 10" wheels with spokes, substitute H104 for H332 at the same price.
