Re: Bowser PRR 2D-F8 trucks

The H30 and H30A used a variety of trucks including the 2E-F2 "Crown".
for numbers corresponding to various trucks. You can certainly use the
Bowser "Crown" for some H30 and H30A models. Other 70 ton truck styles
are less commonly available, but I think there might be one or two that
would also work.

The PRR "Crown" truck used on the Bowser H22 is part 74091 and truck
class 2D-F2 (50 ton) and on the H21a 2E-F2 and 2E-F2a (70 ton truck thus
the journal size E).

The 2D-F8 is a 50 ton truck. Bowser part 74277, Red Caboose part 5009,
Kadee part 517 and Sunshine part TM7. This truck was used under some H22
but no H21 cars. These trucks were used under FM, GLa, GLb, GLc, GLe,

The ASF-3 50 ton truck was PRR classes 2D-F25, 2D-F26, 2D-F26a. These
