Self-Centering Trucks Andrews w/33'' Ribbed Wheels (1900-50s)

The Andrews truck is also a turn of the century design that was long lived. It represents one of the first steps in the development of the modern freight truck with its cast frame. The journal boxes are bolted to the main frame. This truck was used through the end of the 1950's although by that time was only used in lighter applications such as refrigerator cars. Andrews trucks are probably still used were logging railroads remain in operation.

"Not sure what to make of them"
Toronado3800
I don't know what to make of these trucks. The detail is excellent and they roll great. For a couple extra bucks over some Kato's you get an assembly which floats on mini-springs. Definitely interesting. Probably not the toughest wheel set in the world due to that feature. They also made two of my gondolas ride enough higher they went from using center position Kadee whisker couplers to oversets. The higher center of gravity has to off set any advantage the sprung wheels offer.
