Maybe with a rubber mold!
I think I will power the rear truck only,
so I may use a plain six wheel Central Valley heavyweight passenger truck up front.
Not quite sure what this thing had in the rear,
I have many pictures of those cars on file, but none that shows the rear truck in detail.
It may be a smaller adaption of a truck like the Baldwin AS-616 rode on,
or maybe a tender truck?
Many trucks of small electric locomotives were in fact tender trucks,
with electric motors attached underneath.
So this would make sense.
