Do you need trucks for an early-20th Century freight car? The following are available to a new home - make offer. Offer should include your intentions for re-use of the trucks; preference given to equipment restoration projects. If no viable offers for re-use, we will consider parting them out. Located in California.

These trucks are sill available, but not for much longer. Can you think of any early 20th century freight car bodies that need trucks?

I may be interested in the Paccar trucks. Do you know the diameter of the center pin?

Center bowl is 12" diameter. Center pin hole is 2" I think that means you use a 1 7/8" pin.

NTHT is looking for trucks for a static restoration for an interurban car. WhIle these are obviously wrong for that use, correct trucks for an interurban are difficult to find, would be wasted on a static display. Using a pair of freight trucks would also preserve them for a future use, better than scrapping. If any are still available email address is tnold (followed by) North Texas transport dot org. Remove all the spaces and replace the (followed by) with an @, replace dot with a period.

Steamtown, scranton has some, trolley trucks sinking into the ground. Might be worth looking at.
