locked Re: Southern Passenger Train Consist Similarities



An answer to your question #3:

All the 1941 built equipment rode on prewar trucks the were distinctive in that the brake cylinders were mounted low on the truck frame at the inward ends.
Their were a few exceptions, where trucks were traded from car to car but the one exception was on the 841-846 they had their trucks changed at least twice after delivery before being placed on the more modern trucks they rode from the 60's forward.
The 1949 build equipment was on the more modern postwar inside swing hanger trucks.
