Re: DL&W trucks (was:Interstate RR Hoppers)

The STMFC site referenced also has a photo of a DL&W hopper

Does anyone know what trucks are under that car. They look like pregnant
T-section Bettendorf ;-)
Andy, they're fifty ton T-section Bettendorfs. The reason they strike you
as "pregnant" is partly the angle from the which the photo was taken but
mostly the fact that the thirty and forty ton T-sections you're used to
seeing under PFE reefers and the like had more delicate looking side frames
with smaller cross sections.
