Subject: [STMFC] Narrow gauge trucks
Narrow gauge cars generally used 26-inch wheels and had a wheelbase of
48 inches (or close to that). They were built to take much less load
than a standard gauge truck and so had smaller dimensions all around,
including the size of the bolster and of the springs. I base this
statement on narrow gauge cars of the West Side Lumber Co., which
included some from the F&CC.
