Chrysler trucks


Tim O'Connor
 

Besides frequent application to General American box cars I
just noticed that first box car page of the 1953 CBC has a
photo of DL&W 10039, a 1950 Magor built 40' box car -- and
what do you know? Chrysler trucks! This is the earliest car
I've seen with these trucks.

There's a good photo of the plain bearing Chrysler FR-5E on
page 977 of the 1953 CBC too, and a drawing for the roller
bearing version on page 981.

Anyone ever compiled a list of all the cars equipped with the
Chrysler-patent trucks?

Tom,
 
You can add B&M cabooses as equiped with the Chrysler truck. The shock is very prominent in photos.

The PRR used the Chrysler truck under X41B boxcars which were built in 1948.
