Tim and Dave;

That is correct; they are the 70-ton version of the "Crown" truck, also found on other PRR 70-ton cars of that time, like the H21A and G22. They replaced many arch-bar-equipped as-built, with those trucks based on failures.

PRR had many variants of Crown truck, and rebuilt many to serve other purposes or upgrades: see attached. The cast-in information is very educational.

Tim:

They look like the PRR 70-ton "Crown" truck, kissing cousin to the USRA 70-t Andrews. Consistent with the CAPY in the pic (and ORER).
