Re: Modeling truss rods

Have no idea, I do have photos of the car, and the truss rods on the model look very good to me. My modeler friend got this recommendation from someone who models a lot of truss rod cars. My truss rods are on a passenger car not freight. The car is a Central Vermont 300 series truss rod coach built in 1912, later steel sheathed.

That sounds too large to me. How large is the prototype truss rod (diameter)?

At the recommendation of a modeler better than me I used

.025" music wire from K&S Engineering. You can find it at Walthers.

The good thing about this is its steel just like the prototype.
