There's a photo of DL&w 51496, in which the trucks show up a little
better, in Model Railroading Sept/Oct 1984, p 12. (The article is
entitled "Athearn 40-foot Box Car Prototypes", which 22 years later
gave me a chuckle.) The trucks are "Bettendorfs" of fairly generic
appearance, i.e. not Dalmans or National B-1s. I'm not a good enough
truck scholar to tell more specifically than that. I have RP CYC 4 &
have been looking at Richard Hendrickson's article, but there are
enough combinations of equipment in trucks of this type that I haven't
figured out what the spotting features are.
