Trying to locate some accurate, HO scale, Vulcan trucks, as used on[snip]
I have seen Bethlehem Car Works Vulcan trucks, Walthers #718-1220,Since the Kadee trucks can be dismantled, the bolster ends can be
modified with a file.
As in the case of Andrews trucks, which came in as many or more
variants, the name Vulcan identified a construction principle - cast
steel side frames with pedestals into which separate journal boxes
were bolted. ASF made Vulcan trucks over a long period of time, and
side frame configurations varied a lot. Early Vulcan side frames
were L-section, then progressed to a combination of L-section and U-
section, and finally to entirely U-section, as represented by the
Ulrich at one time (many years ago) made some fairly decent cast
metal Vulcan trucks in HO scale, and if you can find a pair on the
second-hand market, their side frames may be closer to what you want.
