National Type B/B-1 (was Re: Kadee Trucks)

Every car in the photos have National B-1 trucks, except I can't say for sure of #9427--the photo isn't that good.

Thanks, Al.

Again, the feature I look for is that funny bolster end. If the bottom is parallel to the top, it's a B-1. If the bottom angles up to the top, then a Type B. The Type B shows a lot more of the spring.
