This group seems to be the best that I'm a member of that can answer
this question - although it isn't directly related to steam era freight cars
it is related to using models of same. Moderator/owner please indulge.
===> Does any one have an axle length that they like to use for
trucks you have used "The Tool" on (the truck ream that
is used to improve the rolling characteristics of plastic
freight car trucks).
For instance - have you found that a .998 axle works best
after you've reamed your trucks? Some other size? Does
it still depend upon the specific truck?
I have been using truck reams for a long time. I'm going to
be replacing some (a lot?) of my wheelsets with Code 88
and would like to be able to purchase "mostly just one size".
