Barber S-2 100-ton roller bearing freight truck

Part Number: PC-211-P

Price: $124.95/ Pair

Although the roller bearing trucks were not a big seller in the 1950’s due to the initial cost over the older solid bearing trucks, the Barber-S-2 fitted with roller bearings and a redesigned side frame by the 1960’s became one of the most common truck designs in the modern era of railroading.

Using drawings from American Steel Foundries (ACF) for the 100-Ton roller bearing truck with a 6’-0” w.b., Boo Rim Precision has captured the essence of this modern truck in all brass construction.  With full brake detail and axle mounted rotating end caps running on machined steel 36” wheels with the correct AAR profile and dimensions (Proto:48), running on ball bearings and working springs to equalize train operations.
