Sn3 C&S Passenger Car Trucks by Leadville Designs

The company announces that they will have these trucks in production this summer. These 5'6"-wheelbase trucks are unique, because classic D&RGW passenger trucks have a 5-foot wheelbase while the Pullmans have a 6-foot one. In the real world, most narrow-gauge truck were composite, but these C&S trucks are all steel. Most narrow-gauge trucks have outside-hung brake beams, but these trucks have inside-hung ones. The trucks are sold as a kit, but only require two screws to assemble. They are full-sprung. The bolsters may require tapping, if desired. The kit will include etched-brass brake rigging, axles, wire, and screws. The trucks will be $59.95 per pair, and they can be pre-ordered now.
