Great Northern Caboose kit

Post by great_northern29 » Sat Jul 23, 2016 7:37 pm

Can you help I am working on my first laser kit of American Model Builders Great Northern Caboose kit. What i need to find is the correct trucks to complete it. The caboose kit was depicting x439 following a phase of refurbishment.

I've just put the words "Great Northern" (in inverted commas), caboose and 439 into Google, and immediately found this big, ongoing post. Too long for me to read it further, but I see pictures of trucks.

There are several GN internet groups, so also suggest you search them out and ask there, if the above link doesn't help.
Good luck.

The 'late' trucks on them look like Andrews ones? If so - Walthers 920-2032?
