Guess this truck!
« on: February 13, 2010, 08:30:24 PM »
Anyone (looking at you PRR fans) know what truck this is?

According to my invoice from Bowser, this is a 70T AAR truck. I never heard of such a truck. The truck is included with Bowser's GLa 2 bay hopper. The few PRR websites that I found with truck information report that the Bowser HO and N scale GLa included 2D-F2 trucks, sort of a home brand 50T Bettendorf:
"2D-F8 PRR Type w/ coil spring Bowser 74277 Shipped w/ F30, GS, GLa kits" from
"2D-F8 Bowser #33145 FM, GLa, GLca, GLx, GR, GRa, GS, X29, X29b, X29 express" from

They look identical to Kadee's 2D-F8:

So, is this the PRR 50T, or an AAR 70T?

If N scale had good SD40-2s, C30-7s, U30Cs, SD45s, SD40s, and SW10s; I'd be in N scale.

I'd say its a "crown truck" or 2D-Fx PRR truck. I'm not nearly enough of a Pennsy snob to be able to tell the subclasses apart.


for more info than you ever wanted on PRR fright trucks.
