Tom's Trucks.
Bettendorf, Buckeye, Caboose, and Modern Roller Bearing.
(select any image for specs and larger picture)

This test shows the flexibility of Tom Bee Trucks.

The brass fixture is .275 inches above the top of the rail. It is the only fixture in the test. Notice how easily the wheels climb over it. Watch closely how the bolsters bounce during the test. This shows correct spring tension for each car. Springs that are too strong won't allow enough flexibility, creating a potential for derailment. Not enough tension and they tend to bottom out. Notice also how well these trucks work given the wide variety of car types.
