Re: T-Section Trucks

Of course when the T section trucks were introduced, roller bearings were effectively (yes available, but not used on freight cars due to perceived higher cost and conservative attitudes about technology, held by railroad officials, so not an option) as no one would specify solid bearing or other.    At the time there were just "Journal bearings", which were understood to be bronze, with babbitt lining.
