"O" scale again!
The plastic couplers made by San Juan Car Co. are
appearance, and will mate with Clousers, and even
Kadees. I have an
easier time working with brass - just a personal
HOWEVER, I wish San Juan Car Co. would make a GOOD
TRUCK in "O" scale - something we have been waiting
MANY years for!
There is so much demand out there for a good plastic
Pennsy truck that
the SJCC owners could retire on that one product

San Juan will likely be able to retire off the ASF
A-3 that he is doing. He
is even thinking of a roller bearing version for
some odd reason.
Steve Grabowski has the 2D-F8 done but for some
reason has not released it.
I agree as to the need.
Yes, those San Juan trucks are awesome! Even though I'm strictly in
HO (with one HOn3 engine and one HOn3 car) I got a pair of the San
Juan Andrews trucks and was almost persuaded to switch to O. I
couldn't figure out how to get the springs into the sideframes without
cutting off a couple of turns from the springs, and therefore had to
glue them in, but I got them to see, not to run. Wow, indeed.
