Now with bolster pins, better details, slots to aid wheelset insertion, and raised cast lettering on the pedestals! (on 4 of 8 trucks)
4 pairs of basic wood beam freight trucks commonly used 1845-1870s.
48" wheelbase, canister coil springs, with brakes. Flat journal boxes are of a type most often seen in Civil War photos by Russell, Brady etc.
This version mounts with a common bolster pin, MT, MDC or similar, or use pins provided.
Requires 33" standard or low profile wheelsets (MicroTrains or Fox Valley Models with .540" length axles). Others may also fit.
Because of their small size and fine detail, Frosted Ultra Detail is the preferred material.
Clean with soapy water or alcohol before painting. Use Bestine rubber cement remover if particularly greasy. Enamels or acrylics recommended.
Part Number T05p
Due to the $5 setup fee for FUD, 4 pairs cost only $1.50 more than one pair.
