     I am more than happy with the Tahoe USRA Andrews truck, and as you say, the Accurail version is good too. The Kadee is a DIFFERENT truck, and some may say, "who cares," but the answer is, SP fans. The SP used the long-tie-bar style on a bunch of cars, including work equipment quite late. So they are NOT interchangeable, Tim, despite what you apparently think.
