8 pairs of wooden passenger car trucks with 5' wheelbase. A common design for small passenger cars, cabooses/waycars, drovers' cars, milk and express cars, this truck was popular from about 1880 to the end of wood car construction. Based on a CB&Q No.7 truck used under waycars from 1880s-1980s. See part T58p for this same truck made with an offset mounting hole to clear end steps etc., just right for MDC and MTL cabeese.

This version mounts with a common bolster pin
Made for 33" low or standard profile wheelsets (MicroTrains or Fox Valley Models with .540" length axles). Large flange MT wheels also fit.
Because of their small size and fine detail, Frosted Ultra Detail is the prefered material. Clean with soapy water or alcohol before painting, or with Bestine rubber cement remover if parts are particularly greasy. Just soapy water is usually fine. Acrylics recommended. Part Number T57p Contact panamintmodels@aol.com for painted models with wheels (~$6/pr).

These work great for U.P. "Q" trucks used on Non-Standard, CA, and CA-1 wooden Union Pacific cabooses. (Micro Trains makes the CA, I kitbash my CA-1's). They also are great for using under U.P. CA-3 and CA-4 steel cabooses by Intermountain (you have to move some of the brake details and fill and re-drill the truck mounting holes). Journals, springs, brake details are identical to the U.P. "Q" trucks. The only difference I can see is the top oak beams have different "bolthead" details and are perhaps not quite as "tall". However, prototype photos of U.P.'s "non-standard" cabooses show these identical trucks under them. I am going to guess U.P. rebuilt these smooth riding trucks with different oak top beams as they transferred them from older non-standard cabooses to the steel CA-3's and CA-4's. I believe it would be easy to modify the 3-D model to get an exact U.P. "Q" truck since all that needs to change is the tops of the coil spring mounts and the nut and bolt details on the outsides of the top oak beam...and maybe make the top oak beam just a few thousandths taller. Drawings and photos are available. 33" Fox Valley narrow wheelsets with Micro Trains axle lengths fit perfect with no problem and look fabulous! I'm giving these five stars!!
