Hi all

There has been some confusion over which trucks are appropriate as the thread meandered some.

The RGS/C&S/F&CC/NCNG boxcar uses the AC&F 4' rigid archbar trucks. These trucks are available in Sn3 from Precision Vintage Classics and in On3/30 from San Juan Model. In HOn3 these are available in brass from Leadville Designs:

These were listed as "out of stock" but the supply was replenished yesterday.

Now the question of which trucks are appropriate for the D&RGW 04965 MOW car came up and for this car, the standard D&RGW 3'7" archbars are correct. These are/will be available from San Juan.

Hope that helps

Although San Juan did not attend the Narrow Gauge convention in Hickory this year, they did send samples of the HOn3 tank cars and the new HOn3 trucks.  I was told the holdup on the trucks is the sourcing of wheelsets.

The San Juan Details listings for the former Grandt C&S Box and Stock cars state that those kits include MicroTrains trucks.  Presumably the Gondola and Refrigerator also have these trucks.  If San Juan has produced the Grandt HOn3 trucks, they really need to list them on the website. 

They do list the O scale trucks.

The San Juan Details website does not currently list any of the former Grandt HOn3 trucks.

Thanks for asking, these kits do not include trucks. The correct trucks are available from San Juan.

Does the MOW Bunk Car kit include trucks?
