All of the 1947 and later photos I have of WM channel side hoppers show
steel (Bettendorf) trucks of various types. Some photos show two
truck types on one car. Some of the 1916-17 Pullman hoppers that were
converted to channel side cars in 1927-32 were built with Bettendorf
T-section trucks and kept them after rebuilding. The latest photo I have
a car with Bettendorf T-section trucks is dated 1942. I also have one
photo of a car with one cast steel truck and one Bettendorf T-section
