CB&Q Caboose Waycar Trucks Coming In HO and O Scale Including P48
We would like to announce our plans to release the most accurate and detailed
CB&Q caboose trucks ever offered in both HO and O scale including Proto:48. This
project was delayed with the production and release of The Burlington Waycar
Drawing Book. Trucks are back up on the burner along with some other projects.
The #7 trucks with a 5' wheelbase and 33" wheels were used on the 28' and 30'
The #2 trucks with a 7' wheelbase and 33" wheels were used on most of the CW
Masters for the O scale #2 and #7 trucks are in final development for fit and
finish and should be available for shipment in about 90 days. The HO #7 and #2
trucks are in process and will follow shortly thereafter.
We used Solidworks to develop the 3D part geometry necessary to produce the lost
wax casting masters using stereolithography. Stereolithography yields the best
and most accurate models in the rapid prototyping market. Corners are sharp and
square and parts are highly detailed due to the high accuracy of this rapid
Our all brass truck kits feature:
Wood grain beams in O scale
Correct brake beam hangers
Correct journal box lids
Sharp and crisp nut bolt washer detail
Sprung and equalized trucks in O scale
Sprung trucks in HO
Correct wheel backside profiles in P:48

Retail prices have not been finalized and prices are subject to slight change.
We've had several requests to offer the #2 trucks in 1/32 scale for the backyard
railroaders that want to build the CW class of waycars. This will be possible if
sufficient interest develops.
The use of 3D CAD coupled with stereolithography provides a superior source for
the creation of casting masters for modeling projects. We have a lot of things
planned for release this year including our line of O scale GP/SD Steam
Generator Detail Parts that are done awaiting instruction sheets. We will post
an announcement when they are available. Stay tuned.
Please let me know your level of interest in these trucks. I am not asking for
firm orders yet. I just want an idea of the level of interest in this project.
Email your interest to waycartrucksatgmailDotCom. I will be checking this email
on an irregular basis but do encourage your feedback.
