Re: what kind of trucks on this box car?

Andy Carlson

They look to me to be standard Barber S2 ride stabilized spring plank-less trucks. NYC was a big user of these trucks. For HO, use the Branchline, now Atlas, Barber S2.

On the 40' Pacemaker box cars, NYC used many Barber S@ stabilized trucks with a spring plank and an outer, solitary single spring. Look on page 90 and 91 of vol. 8 RPC.

Look at the NYC Pacemaker box car in this group of photos -- Anyone
recognize those trucks? Thanks for the help, if you happen to know. :-)
