Re: HO Barber S-4 Swing Hanger Trucks


One of the photos I posted on the Rock Island group, the 20041, appears to have this type of truck.  Other cars had a type of roller-bearing 50 ton truck with a flat top to the sideframe, but appears different than this Barber truck.  Others in the series had a Commonwealth BX truck.  I haven't tried to see if these trucks correlated with specific groups of cars.  But when I saw them, they were bumped to general freight service, probably grain and flour mostly.
