Here is a link to an image of an old freight car truck that has escaped the scrap pile to have a new life:

This was taken in San Pedro, CA, in 2007. The truck has become a rolling bridge which allows cars on the second track to be loaded or unloaded from the dock. Notice the ribbed-back wheels.

This image is from the website of DPD Productions. There are many other railroad images on this site, mostly of modern equipment.
