Re: Please identify truck?
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Whether this truck is a Bettendorf product or a Bettendorf design made by someone else,
I would think that this style has some designation. A name, number, or code to put on
specification sheets for ordering or repair purposes.
And no, the Kadee T-bar truck does not match. Although there is similarity at the bolster,
the top of the journal boxes is much different. The Kadee truck is flat below the bolster and
this truck is curved along the bottom.
Barring new information, I am going to assume this truck has not been produced in HO. No use rooting through boxes at train shows. But when I have to fudge, I'd like to know what
I am substituting instead of. Like when one has to use a Miner handbrake instead of a XYZ.
Thanks, Chuck Peck
