Regarding the plastic wheels on this particular model:

Isn't that an Atlas model that has plastic wheels unlike ANY other N scale model they have? If I remember correctly, they stated on their forum that the wheels where produced by another company than the one they usually use.

The tread is broader, and the rim looks clumsy.

Apart from that it is a really nice model. I have it, and the plastic wheels can be replaced easily.

I just found it:

Dave Casdorph on 2010 May 10

"Yes, there is a new supplier for the tank car (20,700 gallon), the truck and the wheel set. The new wheel set has a 14.44 mm axle length."
