Re: what kind of trucks on this box car?

WHAT??? Andy there are numerous photos on that auction -- I'm referring
to the PACEMAKER car photo -- you have to open the auction and choose it.

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.
