Ho Scale Tahoe Model Works Barber lateral motion 50-ton trucks
The Barber Lateral Motion device used steel rollers and a roller seat
between the bolster and springs to provide a little side-to-side
movement of the car body to the track, resulting in a smoother ride.
U-section trucks with this feature were manufactured from the early
1920s to the late 1930s. Railroads that used this style of truck
included ATSF, B&O, CB&Q, CN, CP, CV, CofG, C&NW, C&EI, ERIE,
DL&W, GTW, IC, MP, NP, RI, SL-SF, SP, T&NO, T&P, UP, and WP.
Also PFE and SFRD.
