Re: DTI trucks

Brian sent me a great photo of a 3rd sideframe with these
springs -- This one is a Buckeye casting (circle-B foundry
mark)... very interesting. Anyone know who besides DT&I had
trucks like this?

Tim: I attached a photo of the truck and car. I don't know what DTI series
this car was in besides I was a 60-early 70's repaint. Brian I copied you
since it is a truck.

You may not be aware but the earliest version of those trucks
I've seen were cast in 1934 by ASF, while the DT&I cars were
built (with different castings from unknown foundry) in 1949.
So someone had the coil-leaf-coil trucks before DT&I. (Or they
were applied to some other DT&I cars.)

I have 5-6 of the DT&I cars located nearby some still have those trucks.
posted some photos to the list years ago 2004 but removed them later.
