Re: PRR G22 question

Maybe I’m getting it backwards, but I thought that the 100 ton truck on the G22B looked like the classic PRR 2D-F8 or AAR Type Y and the 70 ton truck on the G22 is indeed the PRR Crown (Bowser).

Duplicating that 100 ton truck is a challenge, because it has that deep drop. Picking my poison, I used the 50 ton 2D-P8 because of the side frame shape. Too light, not enough springs, but clearly different from the 70 ton crown on the G22.

I have not seen one.  The closest is the 70-ton Crown from Bowser.

Is there a correct 100 ton truck available in HO?
