Eastern Car Works made some (no.9052). Richard Hendrickson's article shows that the kit can be built with either coil or leaf springs.
LaBelle Woodworking has the former Behlehem Car Works Taylor coil springs trucks (no.521). Bethlehem Car Works had the leaf spring version (no. 1218) that was sold to LaBelle, but it has yet to show up on LaBelle's website.
I wish Tahoe made Taylor trucks. Does anybody?
Just a minor side note, the RDG 100053 boxcar is of interest to me, only by coincidence. I model and research the Georgetown Branch of the B&O, with my layout set ca 1945-55. In one of the rare steam era photos I have in my files there is a car from the same series; RDG 100225. According to
http://www.steamerafreightcars.com/gallery/boxauto/rdg102751main.html these cars were from the same series of 500 cars built 3/25 by ACF, class XMt.
Here is the photo, May 30, 1956, Bethesda, MD, by R. Mumford.

As a modeler, of course, I'm interested in representing this on my layout so the search is on for me to find out more about these cars in the HO scale space. Anyway, thank you for sharing!
