@ mad gerald - the bulkhead flats are styrene. I also like to use card and paper, but mostly for structures etc. For rolling stock, styrene is king The visible pedestals on the flats are cosmetic with functional axleboxes lurking behind. I use various 'Ratio' brand 4mm scale plastic wagon chassis kits fitted with brass bearings and pin-point axles. The bulkhead flats in the photos have 12mm 8 spoke wheels, but a couple of much smaller flats I have 'in progress' use 10.5mm wheels, which I think look better - see here. The functional axleboxes can be seen, but after a coat of black paint they will vanish into the under-body gloom....
