Subject: Re: [STMFC] HO Scale Freight Car Truck Document Update
Hi again: not to be critical , but a lack of interest leads to a lack of manufacturer's response. The GN and a few others used dalman- Andrews trucks, too few for manufacturers interest. So here I sit trying to cut up Andrews trucks and glue little pieces to dalman trucks. Alas! Marty Cooper

Thank you, Tim, both for explaining why there are no RB trucks in my truck document and for listing the very few HO scale RB trucks that represent prototypes in use before 1960. In the truck clinic that I have presented at several prototype modelers’ meetings (and will present again at Prototype Rails in Cocoa Beacvh FL in January) I do mention and show illustrations of a number of early roller bearing trucks, including the ‘20s RB arch bars, but they’re not in my survey of HO scale trucks because at present there really are no set-of-the-art early RB trucks in HO scale.
