LouGene, RR diagram books were often more confusing than helpful
regarding trucks. The RRs typically ordered side frames, bolsters,

car might show the side frames as "Gould #456" or perhaps just "Gould
cast steel." In such cases, you really have to look at photos to
determine what type of side frame it was.
