Re: Correct trucks for GN #2540 express boxcars?

Stefan Lerch� asked:
"I have this car in dark green post-war scheme with the colored goat
herald from Intermountain and would like to add the correct trucks for
this class. Any ideas?"

These cars had ASF A-3 Ride Control trucks with Timken roller bearings. See
photo of GN 2538 on page 10 of RPCyc Vol 8. AFAIK, there isn't an exact
match in HO. The MDC Hyatt roller bearing truck is one option for a
stand-in.


"Which class of trucks do the IM trucks that come in their boxcar kits
actually represent?"

Barber S-2.
