I agree it is tough to tell. The attached is one of the HD “Crown” Andrews-type used on the PRR, and the 70-ton and 100-ton are almost indistinguishable. The Bowser Crown would be a very usable truck for this.

Dave is correct, the Accurail Andrews truck is the 70 ton version, as our basic truck mold has the scale 5'-8" axle spacing. I just looked through our files this morning but couldn't find any reference to what I used for reference material.
It's been twenty one years, I recall whatever it was it was published in one of the CBC's, as there was not much primary material available back then.
