Re: heavy duty trucks on B&LE hoppers


Kenneth Montero
 

Roundhouse (Model Die Casting) made such a truck (outside brake hanger) as a part for a kit of B&LE hoppers. The trucks were part no. 2919, "Roller Bearing (heavy duty)". Source: Walthers 1984 HO scale catalog, page 144. I don't know if the roller bearing feature can be cut off and a solid bearing feature can be added.

They look very muck like the trucks under the Helium Tank Cars. Just Google Helium Tank Cars and search Tony Thompsons articles and the articles under Amarillo Rail Museum. These trucks are under the MDC Heavy Duty Ore Cars, but with roller bearings.
