Re: Kadee Trucks and New Atlas Wheelsets

Jeff, Athearn briefly experimented with rotating bearing cap trucks
in the 1960's -- I had some as a teenager. I also have a beautiful pair
of sprung, all-metal trucks of unknown manufacture, made in the 1970's,
with rotating bearing caps.

I will say they all share one trait: poor performance. And both the
Kato and Athearn versions lose their caps easily!

Even those that announced their roller bearings trucks with rotating caps
were the first ever in HO.
