Truck info needed

Bill Lane

Hi All,

Does anyone have good close up photos of a 2D-F1 (Archbar) truck? Would they
be on any cars at Strasburg like the GL? I think I have them on some
builder's photos, but are not clear enough at that zoom in size for my

Does anyone have photos of the 2D-F32 truck (For the X42) on the car? And
where again is the surviving X42? I have very good builder's photos of just
the truck. I am trying to decipher how the bolster worked. The main truck
frame is a large rigid casting with the wheels springing independently on
the large drop center support beam. But it looks like there is a sub-bolster
that is hung in the middle of the frame and swings side to side across the
rails. I can email the General Steel drawing I have.

Any help in explaining how this bolster arrangement works would be greatly
appreciated. Close up photos of the side frame center area with the springs
and bolster area would also be welcomed.

Also please reply if you are interested is seeing these trucks produced in
brass in a scale other then S.

Thank You,
Bill Lane
