Sorry I thought I was sending the e-mail to Gene alone. Yes, "hervorragen" can in some contexts mean "protruding". It also means "outstanding" as in the expression "eine hervorragende Leistung."

Subject: [STMFC] Trucks (Drehgestelle) in German website
Hermann Jahn from Hameln in Germany has a fairly extensive website
concerning trucks. He labels arch bar trucks as 'diamond.' The
thrust of his site is those trucks used on European freight and
passenger cars but since some US trucks found their way to Europe
these are represented too. The site is in German which limits its
utility to a small segment of this group. I thought some of you
might be interested. http://people.freenet.de/drehgestelle/
