Where did you hear that Kato A-3 trucks represent a 70-ton version? The
axle centers measure 5'-6", which is the correct dimension for 50-ton
trucks. The new TMW truck measures 5'-8" on the axle centers.
I'm not aware of any HO-scale plain bearing 70-ton Barber S-2 yet. In
hopes of filling this void I previously submitted requests for this
truck to two manufacturers.
Regarding the N&W PS-1s, some cars had Barber S-2 and others had A-3
Ride Control, therefore a car number is helpful. I presume your WP PS-1
is from series 20821-21400, which had Morton running boards/brake steps
as you stated. This series of cars had A-3 Ride Control trucks.
