I recall chasing this issue around many years ago. The Rock Island diagram sheet refers to them as Barber S-4-L trucks with Timken roller bearings. I need to find a better picture, but for now, this one will have to do
My conclusion, then was to use Bethlehem (old Cape Line) cast trucks, number 1213
Interestingly, I can’t find a reference to an S-4-L truck in the 1946 CBC, but they do show a very similar looking S-5-L truck, although it includes a plain (solid) bearing instead of a roller bearing.
The accompanying text reads as follows
Hope this helps. Perhaps someone else can point to more information on theS-4-L truck.
