I recently acquired a RailWorks PRR R60 Express
Refrigerator car, from which the trucks had been removed. I am trying to
find replacement trucks.
The only pictures that I could find
were (1) a 3/4 angle shot of the prototype from the Hagley Library, and
(2) a head-on side shot of the model from the San Diego Model Railroad
Club. Going to D. Garrett Spear's website, Pennsylvania Passenger Car
Information - Trucks: http://varnish.pennsyrr.com/PRRTrucks/DGS_PRR_PTrucks.htm it appears that the original trucks were 2D3P1.
anyone make such a truck in HO scale? The closest ones appear to be on
Bethlehem Car Works site under Kitbits as no. 1265. Is there anything
available that is closer.
My other alternative would be, if the
original trucks ever were replaced with other trucks on a prototype car,
what would be to apply such other trucks, but I would like to know what
were the replacement trucks and to which car(s) such truck were used as
I am sharing this request with the Passenger Car Yahoo group since these cars are treated as both freight
and passenger cars.
