In answer to an off-line question:
The generic UTLX yellow serif-syle LETTERING is good for cars from the 1960's...
and for many other types of UTLX cars built even earlier;
but the Funnel Flow cars built from the mid-1960's to the early 1970's had conical (slightly pointed) ends.

The Conrail switchers from MTB:

SW1200 9359 used in the seventies

SW8 8604 used in the eighties.

See the pictures with a picture of the original thing. More pictures of the switcher on http://www.zeuke-tt.com

Something small, something new from MTB, but at this moment not yet for sale. Let's say a pre-production model, a 50/70 tons Barber S2 solid bearing truck. At least something coming close.

Any reaction . . . . . This is perhaps even more important than another switcher.

They look great Rob!
The only two things I think would be for the best, #1, if they can be available with RP25 or finer wheels and #2, if Vita could add some sort of insert to reduce the size of the mounting hole in the bolster. He wouldn't have to change the mold to the truck if it would be too difficult, but maybe make a reducing bushing that would make them easier to mount?
Neither is a killer if they don't happen, but it makes a lot of TT guys lives easier if they do!

The truck looks good. I am happy to see that he learned from the errors on the roller bearing truck and made the bolster correctly on this one.

@areibel
I have a fitting insert, that would not be the problem. I have to try other wheels, but I don't think that would be either a problem.

Again guys, this is pre production.

@arseny
Hi arseny, although I did not talk with MTB about the price, it should be comparable with the tank car trucks. A set would cost 11€ incl VAT. Around 9,09 in the US without VAT.

I think he might want to work on getting rid of all those ridge lines. Maybe reorient the print is these masters were RP'd.

Oh, the price for these trucks are inclusive the wheels.

@tom
You see lines because this picture is 5 times the reality. Only with a magnifyer you see these details. These trucks are injection molded plastic trucks. They are made of one piece and more stabil than the old GC trucks.
