RDG 'Wall Street' coach question

Postby Mike@IHP » Sun Apr 11, 2010 5:29 pm

I am building some of the Bethlehem Car Works HO scale kits of the rebuilt 'Wall Street' coaches. The kits do not come with trucks. What kind of trucks were used under these cars and is there an HO representation available?

Thanks in advance,

Mike Bartel

Hello, Mike. Have you asked the folks here at The Reading Modeler yet? They may be better-suited for a query such as yours. I'm not a modeler, but other forum members here might be.

Did you find any thing out about the trucks of the "Wall Street" cars. I think you were talking about the 2000 series cars.? I also think they were called Commomwealth All Spring Trucks. Lance Erickson

New domes should be built and soon.
