Ho Scale Tahoe Model Works Buckeye ARA 50-ton trucks
This truck was manufactured by the Buckeye Steel Castings
Company from the late 1920s until the late 1940s. Conventional
trucks, such as this one, complied with American Railway
Association standards, and prototype features included a spring
plank spanning across both side frames and, in each side frame, four
coil springs grouped close together. Field research was conducted
at the Niles Canyon Railway at Sunol, California.
