I have several of the Western Rails trucks on hand, but not the 3'7" D&RGW version.  These trucks do need a bit of cleanup.  At present, nothing produced by 3-D printing techniques, at least at reasonable prices, can match the surface quality of injection molding in polished metal dies.  But Western Rails does a much better job, on their in house products, than I have often had from Shapeways.  Notably so with their car bodies.  And in some respects, the detailing of these trucks go beyond what could be economically produced by injection molding. 

Their 6' wheelbase BRB&L class 70 passenger truck is a particularly welcome supplement to the common 5' wheelbase passenger truck, appropriate for modeling Pullman narrow gauge and WP&Y cars.
