Just wondering if anyone knows the axle centre to axle centre ?

Think they had 7' wheelbase trucks too?

cheers, Ben

If you means this one -



19'-10" truck centers
7'-0" wheel base

Oh thanks, Jason, I will save that. I had wondered whether an old N gauge mech might be useful for it in TT scale. (an N AAR 9'4" truck = 7" in TT.) The 65 ton centre-cab is longer wheelbase and an oldie Kato RS3 could be used.

This one turns out to be a bit shorter.
