Re: Truck patent and model available


It looks like there would be some stunningly increased loadings on the axle bearings when this truck experienced lateral forces in curves. One could also wonder how often a railroad worker would crawl under a car to inspect/lubricate the solid inside bearings--"never" in 1920 and "never" in 1940. Hell, "never" in 2009.

On the plus side, you'd have less wheel wear since there wouldn't be any due to "differential slippage". No wheel squeal either. Sad.
