Re: What HO truck(s) do we STMFC'ers want?

If you make a better truck, I'm sure we'll buy it. Maybe even
replace the Atlas ones we have...

So we're waiting. :)

Andy and Jason,

The Atlas truck is a very poor representation of the National C-1 70-
ton truck. If you have Tony's SP Freight Cars, vol.1, Gondolas and
Stock Cars, see page 218 for what the prototype really looks like.

Brian, I think you're on to something with the 70-ton trucks. I
just built a Sunshine NYC
gondola kit that needed 70-ton trucks with a 3-1-3 spring package.
I used a pair of Atlas
trucks from a Hart convertible ballast car, adding semi-scale
wheels and Kadee brake shoes.
However, Atlas doesn't list these as separate parts and they aren't
as nice as your trucks

Good luck,
