Trucks on Lancaster and Chester Box Car


Mark Rossiter
 

I am still trying to become proficient in identifying the various freight car trucks.  Would someone please identify the trucks under this Chester and Lancaster box car?  I believe they have spring planks, but I am no expert.

Somewhat off topic, but not entirely.  The writing No Wage Freeze dates this photo to the President Nixon-Ford years.  I remember it well along with WIN buttons.

Yes on the 1957 photograph. Looks like no on the 1971 photograph.

First one appears to be a Barber sideframe with spring plank (Tahoe or Exactrail perhaps?).

The second photo is a Barber without a spring plank (Branchline truck).

P.S. We could really use an UPDATE of the Richard Hendrickson PDF of model trucks, as at least
a dozen new and quite excellent trucks have been produced since that document was finished.
