My two had truck springs .I replaced them with some from ebay problem with front truck so wheel gauge seems to be the answer to your problems .

I do not think that the FED's had tender truck springs and I wonder if they were not an addition to later models. I don't think that Balboa HOn3 loco had them as standard. As far as the trucks are concerned, check the gauge. I have one of these and the issue was that the front truck wheels were out of gauge.
