Re: What kind of truck is this?

I don’t know the name of that truck but the Yosemite Valley Railroad had some hopper cars purchased second-hand which were originally built for the Great Northern Railway. They were, I think, made by Pressed Steel which built those hopper cars. Trucks are available from Wiseman Model Services as Kit OT5301 (assembly required).

Not a typical arch bar truck.
