What trucks go under the F&C SP A-50-5 and SP A-50-6 auto cars. I looked in Hendrickson's SS box cars and auto cars but could not see the trucks clearly.
What era?
Southern Pacific Freight Cars Vol 3, Page 62 shows original circa-1923 Bettendorf T-section trucks...
but these got replaced later in life.
