Description

Arch Bar Trucks
Metal Fully Sprung Equalized Trucks
1pr.

The Arch Bar Truck is typical of these trucks from around the turn of the
century. Despite the age of these trucks, they saw more than seventy years of
service in some applications. The arch bar was allowed in interchange service
until about 1941. On railroads that were not common carriers such as logging or
other industrial lines, this restriction of the trucks did not apply since the
trucks did not operate on rails other than the owner's. The Northern Pacific,
for example, used truss rod frame maintenance of way cars fitted with arch bar
trucks well into the early 1970's. Many logging railroads also used them at
least until then.
