I showed my historical society support by buying a Branchline box car from the Nickel Plate HS. I looked at the list Ed Hawkins put on the Steam Freights website finding these cars (7100 series) had Ajax hand brake, Apex running boards, older Youngstown doors and 8 rung ladders.

What wasn't in the fine copulation was the type of truck these cars rode on. Anyone know?

Thanks for any help : ))
