8 pairs of N scale wooden bolster, archbar freight trucks of the Cleveland pattern. This short wheelbase diamond arch type was popular from the early 1860s through the 1880s. Outside brakes on both trucks hung from the car's underfloor on the prototype. Note the raised stars, circles, or lettering on the journal lids.
This version mounts with a #0 or #00 screw.
Requires 33" low profile wheelsets (MicroTrains or Fox Valley Models with .540" length axles). Others may also fit if they have similar axle length.
Because of their small size and fine detail, Frosted Ultra Detail is the preferred material. Clean with alcohol before painting. Use toothbrush soaked in Bestine rubber cement remover if particularly greasy. Enamels or acrylics recommended. Note this is a rather fragile model, so use care when handling.
Part Number T70s.
