Re: Chrysler Trucks (was New P2K 50' Boxcars in SP...)

The Railway Prototype Cyclopedia - Vol. 4 has a Chapter "Freight Car Trucks".... on the lower righthand corner of page 47 there is a picture of the Chysler FR-5 and the text discussion of that truck starts on the same page.
The truck has a shock absorber snubber in front of two front springs and otherwise is a fairly normal truck. One could find a similar truck frame casting and add the details unique to the FR-5 rather easily, I imagine.
