4 pairs of "live spring" trucks from the 1840s. Trucks of this design used a wooden, or cast iron, bolster holding half eliptic leaf springs which support the journals in leu of sideframes. These were very popular on the Baltimore & Ohio from the 1830s to 1855 for freight and passenger use and on a few other lines in freight service until the 1880s. Popular on southern railroads just before the Civil War and used on Wurtemburg Railways cars into the 1880s. Brakes on one truck of each pair as per common practice. Roller style body bearings.
48" wheelbase. This version mounts with a #0 or #00 screw.
Use the supplied wheels or 33" low profile wheelsets with .540" length axles (Microtrains or Fox Valley Models).
Because of their small size and fine detail, Frosted Ultra Detail is the preferred material.
Clean with soapy water or alcohol before painting. Use toothbrush soaked in Bestine rubber cement remover if particularly greasy. Enamels or acrylics recomended.
