Funaro & Camerlengo T-24 Buckeye Cushion Resin trucks
Alerted here recently about these trucks—I think it was Bruce Smith—I ordered a pair from an eBay vender as I could not find them on F&C's website. I think they look pretty good. It is easy to tell that the pattern for these was 3D printed but to me the striations are not objectionable. They will go a long way to further uglyfying the N&W B-5 they are destined for once Yarmouth is able to introduce their kits.
Here is some supplemental information I shared with Pierre for the pending N&W B5 boxcar project, regarding the trucks that were applied to these cars. Bud Jeffries from the N&W Historical Society has a drawing from the N&W archives that describes the various classes of trucks for N&W equipment. There were six classes of trucks used in "High Speed Freight" service.
Class Type Used on
T-74 Young, Buckeye B-4 Box cars
T-75 Barrett Whitehead B-5 "
T-76 Nat'l Malleable Type B B-5 "
T-77 Buckeye All Service B-5 "
T-78 Allied Full Cushion B-5 "
T-79 Young, Buckeye G-3 Mill type Gondola
Of the six classes, four were used under the B5
The drawing's last revision date is 11-11-53 and it lists only two other classes of trucks being used under the B5 boxcars, they are the T-41b and T-71 as of that date.
B5 series 48000-48999 were built with N&W class T-41b, T-71, T-75, T-76, T-77. (Some cars appear to have received the T-78 trucks later on)
B5 series 49500-49999 all had N&W T-71 class trucks.
