Hi

Just wondering if these brass trucks are Kemtron?

Cheers

They sure look like it!
if they have a relatively thick axle (about .095 inches, or roughly 2.5mm) with pointed ends, I'd say yes.

They do, yes. I measure the axle to be 2.35mm dia. They are v. thick castings too, in fact so much that they stick out the sides of the (on average) smaller Australian wagons. I may use them because they are the only Bettendorfs I can find that are the right wheelbase, but I'll do some filing and may even use a bolster to respace them . . . inwards . . . and that for 13.5mm gauge!

However the advantage of the design is that they seem to roll very freely and being brass, they weigh a ton; no problems staying on the track I imagine.
