Power Pick-Up Truck has special mechanical and electrical design which allows
for dependable connection even on moderately dirty and slightly uneven track.

two different wheel sizes. How can I tell which wheel size to buy?
The very best way is to use a dial caliper and measure the largest diameter of
the wheel tread. If the measurement is closest to 0.414 inches then the wheel
is a scale 36" wheel.
If the diameter is closer to 0.379 inches then
the wheel is a scale 33" wheel.
You could also ask your local
hobby shop personnel which size wheels are on the freight cars that you would
like to install the Power Pick-Up Truck.
There is actually very little difference in the 33" and 36" wheels (The radius
difference is only 0.017") therefore it is likely that a 33" will fit an
original 36" freight car and vice versa.
