Anyone have any hints on creating your own bolster for these suckers?  Seems like its a "create your own" if you want this thing to track properly.

I highly recommend this TB thread by ram53 (who is an occasional poster here too).

I highly recommend this TB thread by ram53 (who is an occasional poster here too).

We have started work [after a delay - for which sincere apologies are due] on retooling the ends following the problems with fitting trucks to these cars and getting them to run well. As Richard pointed out in the TB thread referred to above, the problem is due to the very low profile of the cars - and we wanted to reduce the 'high running' issues apparent with the ConCor AP48 well cars. The fix will follow Richard's advice in the thread.

The etches are now repatterned too and I will let folks know when they are ready. We should have the cars for the NSE Convention in Milwaukee in June.
