Barber 50/70/100-ton Roller Bearing truck kits
NOW WITH BRAKE SHOES/BEAMS DETAIL !!!
Fully sprung and equalized kits WITH ROTATING END CAPS are comprised of 3D-printed sideframes, cast urethane bolsters, pre-assembled wheelsets made from bright Nickel-plated code 110 brass rims with injection molded ABS centers, (2) styles of molded end caps, springs and #2 screws. Bolsters and sideframes include locating "posts" allowing for easily positioned springs ... spring load keeps them in place ... no glue required.
Kits now include easily-assembled, cast urethane brake shoes and beams per truck (designed to fit previous production runs, too). You can purchase just these kits to retrofit older trucks.
These (3) are complete truck kits, including brake shoes/beams:
Kit No. 64-TK-50T (50-ton, 33" wheels, 2 trucks) ... $27

Add these eye-catching, rarely-seen, details to your layout!
It's just a matter of fact that every manufacturing process has "rejected" parts ... making wheelsets is no different. These 33" and 36" wheels have injection molded centers with slightly off-axis axle holes that cause a little wobble. Not suitable for rolling stock but PERFECT for static display, such as flat car loads, part of your wreck train or just stacked around the car shop.
Each wheelset contains (2) 33" or 36" bright Nickel-plated wheels pre-gauged onto telescoping brass tubing "axles", styrene tubing to simulate bearings and a sprue of (10) molded bearing caps (2 styles).
*** Affordably priced at only $1.50/wheelset ***
Kit No. 64-TK-33WS ... $15.00 (10 wheelsets w/ 33" wheels)
Kit No. 64-TK-36WS ... $15.00 (10 wheelsets w/ 36" wheels)
(Supply will vary since the goal is NOT to make rejected parts!)
