Re: Barber vs ASF in HO

I grant you all of that! But overall I find the RC truck the most pleasing
of the plankless Barber S2's. Your trucks are of course without equal, but
since you have spring planks, well... that is a disqualification as well for
RC corrected the bolster ends on their 70 TON plain bearing Barber S2, thankfully.
I need far more of those for my own modeling.
Beggars can't be choosers, as my Mom used to say... :-)
Take another look at that Red Caboose Barber S2 truck. As I recall, the truck bolsters are lacking the two wedge shapes visible at the ends. Inside these shapes, the real trucks had the spring loaded wedges that pressed against the columns. Without those, the truck cannot be an S2.
