Freight Car Trucks 1900-1960

Courtesy of Tony Thompson, an illustrated and well-researched article by the late Richard Hendrickson in the May 2013 issue of Model Railroad Hobbyist:

Click on "Portrait" or "Landscape", go over a few pages to the Table of Contents and then click on the article title.

If you are upgrading older freight cars there are many good choices for replacement trucks. This is a good resource to guide your purchases.

Richard also published a guide to HO scale trucks. This guide was last updated in 2014:
