Re: Speaking of trucks
IMO, the Kato journals are the right size for 5-1/2"x10" journals--50-ton. The Kato A-3 truck has the proper wheelbase, 5'-6", for a 50-ton truck, and their spring detail represents the 5 coil grouping of a 50-ton A-3 truck. These are spaced in a 2-3-2 pattern, with a visual gap between the front springs. The two front springs are close together on A-3 70-ton trucks.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
However, Kato's 50-ton A-3 truck was made for their 70-ton covered hopper, and that's why Kato's website falsely claims it to be a 70-ton truck, I guess.
