Not quite sure what a 'pandered Peckett' is, but for the others they all use the same Ringfield motor brush - pack X8026 for 10 or X8466 also containing 10 brush springs.  Traction tyres are packs X8029 (or later renumbered X8461) - small, and X8030 - large.  Each pack contains 10 tyres.  Small is for the HST and class 91 plus the Railfreight loco which is likely to be a class 37 or 47, whilst the large is for Mallard's tender.
