I need something like this:

It seems to me that your trucks are closer to it than Kemtron.

Edit: Kemtron trucks look approximately like this; it has only 3 leaf springs in the middle.

I have some resin and metal copies (which came with John Harmon's passenger cars) - and also one pair of original Kemtron brass trucks somewhere. I'll post a picture when I find it.

The main difference I see between the PRR 2e-p6 and the GSC 41-CS-11 is the "thing-a-ma-jigs" mounted on the ends of the hubs.

Is "thing-a-ma-jigs" a Pennsy specific term is a more general technical term used by all the truck manufacturers?

I'm pretty sure that term spans many industries. :lol:

After a comedy of errors I finally got the molds made up for the trucks. These two kits are ready to go, I just need to make up some instructions for assembling them. The Dinner and a few sleepers will follow soon.

In the last pic you can see I have the beam setup with a shoulder on the ends so they are self aligning when assembling.

Thanks!

The paint (Krylon silver brilliant) actually makes them look worse in the pics. The silver flakes gives them a grainy appearance.

They look really good man. I need to do some research and see if they are appropriate for the cars I have....

I really hate to post a price for something and then increase it before releasing the product but at $25 each I would just barely be breaking even on these. So, how does $32 each sound?
