My usual first site to check, Elwood's Fallen Flags, has no (???) GTW freight cars at all.

I was wondering about the trucks, as I typically will toss the Athearn trucks for something else.

Assuming (I, know, I know . . ) that this even remotely resembles a prototype car (I think this was
a door prize), what sort of trucks would be good?
I'm not sure about the trucks, as I don't have very many GTW data sheets, and none covering these cars -- the model however, will be a definite stretch as the GTW 516600-516899 series was built by Pullman- Standard in 10-11/57, which would scream PS-1 at me.
