The better match may be out of stock, but at least it's on sale.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

"I can't speak to the origin of the flat car... but... believe it or
not, those trucks are available in HO scale! But you gotta buy a
Bachmann Caboose to get them as I cannot find them listed separately on
the Bachmann site."
I respectfully disagree. The trucks may have leaf springs, but the
sideframe profie, particularly the top chord, is a poor match to the
prototype trucks. A better match is this truck:
It's out of stock at Walthers, but if you can find a pair on the
secondary market and add Precision Scale leaf springs, you'd have a
much closer match to the prototype.
