Default Is Gary Raymond still in Business?

Or better yet, is there a web site that shows all the different wheels he offers and the prices?

There used to be an 'Earthlink" page - a table of all his wheels, but that web page no longer exists.


And a more general question - Is there a fairly recent lsting of Large scale metal wheels somewhere on the net?



Thanks, Knut

I used to use Raymond wheels exclusively. I have nothing against the wheels. They are excellent!
However, I got so tired of waiting months for the wheels to arrive, that I switched to Sierra Valley wheel sets. 1 week service!

I don't know if Raymond is a one man shop in his garage, or what.
But if so he needs to hire help and start getting the product out!

Just a small rant.

Gary doesn't have any employees, but I think that at least some steps in their manufacturing happen someplace else. I could be wrong about that. I've been inside his house, but there is so much stuff there that it would be easy to overlook something. Wheels are only one of Gary's many, many interests.

Jay-Bee makes FRR wheel sets with electrical pickups. These work great on the LGB cars with the small wheel sets, I even got them installed on the LGB toytrain tender.
These are sleeve bearings, not ball bearings.

Dan,

The 1's that I got are the .890" in diameter for some oar cars.. He had some that were about 1.125" in diameter for larger cars.. I will have to check out the FRR wheels with electrical pickup..
