This is not thread to bash said aforementioned standards. Rather, and although a new comer to the scene, I've noticed that despite the standards there seems to be some slight differences. I found it curious that the only cars that seemed to be "sketch" on my trackwork were the Athearn RTR cars I've purchased. I have a couple of 40' reefers and they would rock like a ship at sea when pushed over one of my crossings. So this evening, I went out and picked up a package of Kadee wheels. Enough to do three cars. What a difference swapping out the wheels made. They now roll across the crossing like butter, even at a good clip. The only obvious difference I can tell by looking with the naked eye is that the flanges on the Athearn cars seem to have slightly fatter, rounder flanges. By comparison, the P2K, True Line, and now Kadee wheels have thinner "sharper" flanges. Now I know, I'm an odd man out here with the handlaying. However, I've been meticulous with my trusty NMRA gauge and found it curious that one particular brand of wheel would not seem work well when everything else seemly does. This is even if adjusted and checked with said gauge and seeming to be within spec. What I wonder is if others have encountered this situation with a particular brand of RR product. I'm curious to hear about other people's experience here and if there is any validity to my thoughts.
