Re: PS-2 Covered Hoppers

If one is serious about model trucks, must do the prototype research. Also trucks could
be changed out depending on the age of the car. Two springs unless otherwise noted. And
plain bearing unless otherwise noted. "Barber S-2-A" is an approximation - could be Symington
or National, any kind of "ride control" plankless trucks.
