RPO 4-wheel trucks

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread


With the release of the new Rivarossi 60-foot RPOs this month, it appears a good representation of Southern's 30-49 class can be done in HO.

The model, though, comes with 6-wheel trucks. What is the correct 4-wheel trucks for these RPOs? I know they had a strange curved equalizer bar instead of the normal straight as seen on many railroads.

Also, what ever became of the Pullman Lake Pearl? I do not remember seeing it after the excursion trains ended.
