Reply to "Kline Allegheny Missing A Wheelset--1/58th Scale??"

Uhhhh...this kind of thing can only happen to me I think...I bought a nicely detailed K-line 2-6-6-6 Virginian Allegheny (K3799-0903W). It was lightly used when I got it and I did not run it for months after receiving it. And when I did, I discovered that one of the wheelsets in the trailing truck was missing--flat out gone.  I looked up the loco online, found a CTT review--and doggone it if the reviewer didn't say that one of his trailing-truck wheelsets fell off the engine as he tried to test it!

The review also said that this was a "scale" engine--scaled to 1/58th scale! It seems that instead of selective compression, K-line decided to just scale the whole engine down to get a 2-6-6-6 that would handle tight curves. Looking online, I found no K-line wheels in 1/58th scale (big surprise!).

The engine of course, runs fine without the wheelset. But sheesh...c'mon...

Anyone know where I can get a 1/58th scale wheelset for this thing? Or another way to match up the odd wheel size to get a wheelset? All help gratefully appreciated.
