Which truck for which car?

Which truck for which car?

Postby MacG » Sun Oct 28, 2018 3:07 pm

Regarding the freight car trucks available at TiTan Downunder, I have the following question:
Which truck is common for which type of car?

I tried to set up a list. I'm open to corrections and additions. The links lead to the respective pictures.

Andrews:
  • stock, flat, gondola cars of shorter 40' length and lower load limits
National B1:
  • some 2- or 3-bay offset hopper cars like ERIE and Northern Pacific
  • ERIE used it on many of the different freight cars like the AAR steel boxcars
  • 3-bay offset hopper cars from Southern Pacific (TNO)
Arch Bar:
  • old wooden boxcars like the GC-Fowler car
  • old riveted flat cars
ASF A-3 ride control (50 ton):
  • most of the 2-bay offset hopper cars
  • 40' AAR steel boxcars like the GC-model
  • 40' insulated boxcars
70 ton roller bearing:
  • 50' boxcars built after 1970 like the FMC Railbox (pre-1970 is it the Barber S-2)
  • flat cars with a maximum lenght of 55'
100 ton roller bearing:
  • Northern Pacific woodchip car
  • ATSF coal hopper
  • modern 60' boxcars
  • cylindrical hopper cars
  • gondola cars
  • flat cars with a length over 55'

Check photos of the prototype for the correct type of trucks!

Point of Order: North American rail cars don't have 'bogies'... they have 'TRUCKS' !!!

I have done some corrections. But without reading the reference files 1-3 from Richard.

@Richard-B: Many thanks for your help! I knew the difference between the term bogie and truck. I just wanted a short, concise headline. It's now changed.
