Here are some quick snaps of the truck side frame and the underside of the PRR diner.  Making progress.

That truck frame looks excellent! I can't comment on the underframe, since I don't have a clue about Pennsy diners.


Hmm... I could use about
80 Gulf Mobile & Ohio
diners...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

Joe, any hope for electrical pickup on these cars or are you planning on using Rapido's Easy lighting system like previous cars?

Looks good Joe.  Thanks for posting.

SPF's - So what other PRR passenger cars would these trucks be correct for?

I'm going to ask if the trucks, and possibly underframes will be available separately.

I would be so happy to see those trucks enter the permanent offerings.

Not sure which other cars the trucks could be used but some of these diners later got 4 wheel trucks when they were modernized

There has never been a better time to model Pennsy in N scale.  Thanks, Joe!
