NOTE*: These manufactures have stopped production and have either closed up shop or been sold to others. Check eBay for possible old stock items.
A cross car bolster with out board bearings, as applied to Passengers Cars after 1920, is supplied as an additional part. We are often asked "where are the bolsters on the cars?". The answer is they are flush with the bottom sheathing and not exposed. For earlier cars, without the out board bearings, substitute one or more fiber washers to get correct coupler height. See photos for parts and completed truck. Gray painted ones are for detail, correct color is Pullman Green to match car sides, or Silver for post '50's D&RGW and post '81 D&SNG. Sold as a pair with plastic wheels and axles, or in multi pair packages. Easy assembly. Be sure to check out our other auctions and our store, modelrailroadgeneralstore, for even more narrow gauge rolling stock, locomotives, structure kits, pictures and more, lots more Narrow Gauge there.
