SD trucks in TT?

Did anyone in TT ever make truck castings for an SD7/9 or similar six axle EMD?

Hi Ben,
No, nothing three axle except the brass HP castings for the E7, they're not close for the SD. There are some rough castings for the Gandy Dancer DD40 with four axle trucks, I'll have to see how close they are.
I think Michael (Art and Detail) is going to have a later version SD sideframe for his diesel, and Andrey may be producing one to go along with the SD45? But they'd need some modifications to be right for an SD7/9- the wheelbase and axle spacing is the same, but the older ones would have friction bearings instead of rollers.

thanks al. i'm trying to get something right for a C-C aussie diesel based on that F7 casting you sent me some years back (no idea where it came from.) the cab and nose is spot on for an aussie GM diesel. i will just cast them i think as the SD is more of a 'near enough' thing though it has the right 134" wheelbase.
