I just left mine from the mid-1980’s with the monster flanges and run it on code 100 track.

I tried it once about 25 years ago, following a how-to piece in RMC, IIRC. It recommended, again IIRC, using an abrasive wheel on a motor tool. End result was a mangled, but smaller, flange. Even tried ordering correct-size drivers from Markits/Romford in UK, again IIRC on the firm name. Nice drivers, but they required filing different slot profile for drivers in the engine frame to fit fatter axles. That engine is still in pieces somewhere ...

Has anyone attempted to change out the Large Flange Drives on old 
Rivarossi engines like the 70's Y6b or Berkshire?
