The H30 rode on a multitude of trucks:

2E-F2 Bowser Crown
2E-F2a different spring package
2E-F10 dbl truss
2E-F11 National
2E-F12 Young
2E-F13 dbl truss
2E-F14 National
2E-F15 Young
2E-F22 ASF A-3
2E-F22a ASF A-3

The difference between the classes of the same type are one or more of spring packages, brakes and bolster.

The H30a all rode on 2E-F22a ASF A-3 70 ton trucks.

The Tangent ASF A-3 truck should be close as the G31b rode on a variation of this truck.

So you have two options for the H30 the Bowser Crown truck or the Tangent ASF A-3 Note the National referred to in these classes is not the same as the National B-1 which was PRR truck class 2E-F23 nor the National C-1 which was2E-F25/b/c.

For the H30a the Tangent ASF A-3 should work

Rich,

hoppers.
