Using the Aristo trucks actually works just as well as I posted pics earler Much better and do not have the funky imitation springs in the trucks. Later RJD

Well it would be nice not to have to buy other trucks for all the cars.
I may have to get one.
See what Greg thinks can be shaved off or adjusted.

Marty the other reason I use them I had a bunch left over from coveting newer rolling stock over to the AC roller bearing trucks. Later RJD

I have shot more pictures, and there is a spacer on the bolster, and even better, the center pin that holds the truck on is solid all the way to the chassis floor, so you can cut the bolsters down as low as you want until you rub the wheels.

All of this is on my page: [url]http://www.elmassian.com/trains-mainmenu-27/rolling-stock-mods-aamp-tips-mainmenu-33/usat-rolling-stock-mainmenu-87/ore-cars-mainmenu-271[/url]


The picture below shows the square spacer glued on: (you can just make out that the center post is continuous all the way back to the "floor":
