Ho Scale Tahoe Model Works Barber-Bettendorf swing motion caboose trucks
This version of the swing motion caboose truck was manufactured from
1935 to the late 1950s. Originally a proprietary product of the Bettendorf
Co., in 1942 the manufacturing rights were acquired by Standard Car Truck
Co., who then added their trade name “Barber” to this truck’s name. The
prototype had 4¼ X 8” axle journals (30 ton capacity), plain bearings and a
5’-6” wheelbase. Over forty railroads used this caboose truck.
