Re: Central Valley trucks
OM has 26" wheels. To use the CV trucks you would need to make a standard gauge bolster, and fit narrowed wheel sets to it.

Hi Tony, do you know OM actual wheel spec?
Is it a standard gauge 33 wheel set to 3' or 26 wheel set to 3'?
I think NWSL wheels allow you to move both wheels on the axel.
If that is the case, I can use the CV trucks with the NSWL wheel sets and set the wheels at 3'

The CV trucks look nice converted but need to be widened for OM. It has a standard gauge truck and axles with wheels set to 3'.
OO was the only one to have actual narrow gauge trucks.
