2 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 (MT, Athearn etc.) or use the ones included.
Made for 33" low, standard and large profile wheelsets (MicroTrains or Fox Valley Models with .540" length axles). Others will also fit if they have similar axle length. Large flange MT wheels also fit.
Because of their small size and fine detail, Smoothest or Smooth Fine Detail is the prefered material. Clean with soapy water or alcohol before painting. Use Bestine rubber cement remover if particularly greasy. Acrylics recommended. Part Number T57p, Also available in a version (T58p) with an offset mounting hole for use in tight spaces, such as under a caboose or Athearn/MDC Overton cars.
