Re: Kadee Trucks


So now we have the Proto 2000 Type B and the Kadee Type B-1. Does the
Athern truck represent a true B-1?

Thanks Brian, I will now be forever confused as to weather I need a
Proto 2000 Type B, or a Kadee Type B-1 under my models requiring
that type truck!!

Relax, Paul. Brian is entirely correct, but the differences are very
subtle and often impossible to see in prototype photos. Most
viewers, even on this list, will never be able to tell whether your
model has National Type Bs or National Type B-1s. My advice is to
use what you have or - if you're buying new trucks - go with the
Kadees because of their excellent brake shoes and rigging,
equalization, and self-centering.
