"Good for Train Set Car Truck Replacement"
sneubaum
I have a large number of Tyco and Life-Like freight cars. All too often when pulling out the snap-in trucks, the snaps break (Particularly on older 1970s production, as the plastic can become a bit brittle), and with the large kingpin hole, most freight trucks are not easy to mount to the car. These trucks are very handy when replacing a truck with a cracked kingpin snap. Generally, Life-Like and Tyco cars can use each others' trucks, too. The usual Tyco truck seems to be a 70-Ton ride control truck, used later in the 1940s, and among the last journal trucks allowed in interchange service. Life-Like's truck is more on the mark for a Bettendorf, so are more appropriate for earlier style cars, such as woodside boxcars and reefers. Kadee's #212 talgo adapter allows the use of Kadee #5 couplers with these trucks, though some minor filing or trimming may be needed on the coupler pocket tongue. All in all a good truck, tends to free roll quite well, and really the only truck left on the market that will snap in directly into Tyco and Life-Like cars.

"Excellent Piece, Right Price"
Matthew.I.lipscomb
I had an old Life Like gondola from a train set of my older sisters from about 25 years ago. It had no trucks of couplers and the old push push pin type mount. I ordered these as they were the only trucks I seen of a push pin type and they had the horn hook type couplers like most of my rolling stock. Now my gondola runs smooth as butter and stays coupled very well. Thanks for helping me revive what I'm sure will become a family heirloom.
