I used left over Model Die Cast archbar trucks for the cars,
and Kadee #5s.
The cars are intended for a seperate mining operation,
so will not be used on my in progress layout.
Always fun to remove TRI-ANG trucks.
I usually wedge them to one side to leave a gap,
and cut the mounting rivet, using a decent hobby saw.
A couple of lengths of Evergreen tubing glued in,
trim and mount the trucks.
Then onto the next conversion.
I will be using Plastruct 91681 HO scale diamond/tread plate,
to cover the open deck, as I found a couple of sheets in my stock pile.
Will cut out a brass template for cutting the plastic.
