The Life Like name was used under license in Canada by Hobbycraft. Some of the Canadian products stayed with Hobbycraft and are now marketed under the True Line Trains marque. Try this URL for those trucks:

The CN Fowlers have been photographed on Arch-bar trucks, "Bettendorf"
style, as well as "Simplex Bolster" trucks. Life-Like was offering
Simplex Bolster trucks, but a recent attempt by my local hobby shop to
order some from Walthers meet with failure. However TrueLine Trains is
showing on their website that they are now offering a Simplex Bolster
truck. Can't find the URL right now. Will continue looking.
