Re: Trucks on Lancaster and Chester Box Car

First one appears to be a Barber sideframe with spring plank (Tahoe or Exactrail perhaps?).

The second photo is a Barber without a spring plank (Branchline truck).

P.S. We could really use an UPDATE of the Richard Hendrickson PDF of model trucks, as at least
a dozen new and quite excellent trucks have been produced since that document was finished.

I am still trying to become proficient in identifying the various freight car trucks.  Would someone please identify the trucks under this Chester and Lancaster box car?  I believe they have spring planks, but I am no expert.

Thanks in advance for your assistance!
