4 pairs of HO scale swing motion, wooden bolster, archbar freight trucks of the Allen or 'California' pattern. This type was popular from the mid 1860s through the 1880s, especially on Western US railroads. Modeled after those under the Virginia & Truckee ventilated boxcar at the Nevada State Railroad Museum, probably of Central Pacific origin. Outside brakes on both trucks hung from the car's underfloor on the prototype. Half have stars on the journal covers like the prototype.

approx. 60" wheelbase. Note photos show a preproduction model with an overly wide bolster center.

Mounts with a #2 screw.

Requires 33" wheelsets with 1" axles (Kadee, Athearn/MDC, Intermountain, Reboxx). Others may also fit.

Because of their small size and fine detail, Frosted or Frosted Ultra Detail is the preferred material. Clean with alcohol before painting. Use toothbrush soaked in Bestine rubber cement remover if particularly greasy. May require a little scraping. Acrylics recommended.
Part Number HOT82s.
