hi all, i want to re truck all my red caboose and tichy stock with a standard truck make. its either pk2 or kadee, any suggestions welcome.


Diesel Detail Freak
Suggestions as in a make? I prefer Athearn Genesis due to the semi-scale wheels, or Brachline wheels in Walthers, Athearn or Accurail trucks.

I use Athearn trucks, with either KD wheel sets or P2K wheel sets, (depending on which set my LHS has), when I can't replace them with old Central Valleys.
