What sad news. I always looked forward to seeing Frank at the many meetings he and I attended, and we almost always would have lunch or dinner together at some point during the event. (One of the great ones was during the joint SP-UP historical societies convention in Ogden in 2019, where Frank was ecstatic about seeing the restored “Big Boy” on display.) He had a truly great wealth of knowledge, which he loved to share. And I loved his many stories about his time doing dentistry in “the kingdom,” as he always termed Saudi Arabia. Plus he had extensive knowledge about the petroleum industry, and often could provide a wonderful “nugget” in conversation. Best of all, he was a genial soul, always interesting and enjoyable to chat with. I knew him for over 30 years, beginning when he contributed photos for the PFE book back in 1990, and he was unfailingly generous with information, literature leads, and photos. I will very much miss his smiling face at Cocoa Beach and elsewhere.

No, not true. First of all, citrus coming into a packing house is definitely not greenish — I have visited several over the years, and can speak from experience. Second, much citrus is “conditioned,” as it is called, stored for some days to allow the rind to thin. This is especially true for lemons.

If you looked at the SP article I referenced, the culls appear to be uniform yellow.
Other photos I have seen of cull also show this.
And the comment "Citrus was usually picked green to allow it to 'ripen' in transit to retailers (stores)." is incorrect.

Thanks, not the same trucks unfortunately. Oh well.

3/32" ??? Are you talking about O scale ? That sounds huge.

Well, they will be more fragile. If you are worried about bearing wear, you might design them to use the nylon bearing inserts that Tichy designed into the 100 ton wrecker trucks. As I recall, these fit into a 3/32" diameter cylindrical hole (but don't design the part until you measure the bearings) and provide the standard 60* cone shaped bearing in a tougher material. I don't see these on the Tichy web site as a separate part, but Don is easy to deal with, so contact him and ask.

I have long been trying to get modelers excited about doing the Santa Fe version of the Andrews truck.  There are two styles.  As I am not into doing cad drawings, etc. what would be the process of getting this muchj needed truck done?

Nice looking pair of L or T (?) section Andrews. Good through the 1940's I think.

Jim,

Zenith Model Works on 3dptrain.com offers several unusual truck styles, mostly from the early 1900s.  The ones I have look to be well printed and are nicely detailed.  They roll well with the recommended Kadee wheelsets.  I haven't run them enough yet to know how durable they will be.  But they are very reasonably priced so might be worth a try if any of them are what you are looking for.

In HO scale I think the ONLY chance we will ever get accurate Chrysler trucks
(both plain and roller bearing) is from 3D printed trucks. Good performance is
desirable but the appearance is even more important to myself anyway. 😉

As long as they don't break when inserting the wheels, I'm good to go with them.

Are those 70 ton clasp brake trucks ? Would they be correct for Carbon County open hoppers
(or indeed other US Steel cars, like the B&LE) ?

Thanks so much for letting us know. I am sad about it. Frank was one of the highlights
of the Naperville/Lisle RPM meets for me. It was always a blast talking with him at meals
or on a trip to Des Plaines Hobbies, even the trip when my rental car was struck by a 16
year old unlicensed driver and we ended up at the police station filing a report. 😁

Frank was a very cordial friend and possessed a wealth of information. His presentations on steam locomotive appliances were exceptional. His passing is a great loss to the model railroad community.

A few years ago I presented a clinic on this at Collinsville. Dennis Storzek, Ken McCorry, Jared Harper and Doug Harding was very helpful in putting it together.
I see a lot of new and good information that I should add.
 Anyone wanting the clinic can get in touch with me

Gene,

In addition, Walthers once made trucks with leaf springs (for cabooses) - no. 934-818 (Bettendorf-type trucks) and 932-892 (arch bar trucks). They had working leaf springs, but (if I recall correctly) the springs were oversized.

Maybe slightly off topic but similar, years ago someone made metal leaf springs inserts for HO sprung trucks. Could something like that be 3D printed? I need to find a source for several cars and have not found any of the metal ones (anyone know of a source?) so perhaps they could be 3D printed?

Ah dang. I always enjoyed my conversations with Frank. Had several good ones with him at the St. Louis RPM earlier this year.  I used to be the one without gray hair now I’m close to 50.  Time marches on.
