Hello, I own a couple six axle Bachmann item number 18345 HO Scale Silver Series 52' Center-Depressed Flat Cars. My layout is full of 18" curves and switches. In general 6 axle locomotives and railcars do not run as well on it as their 4 axle counterparts, even my 30 year old tyco stuff.
Tonight I was feeling experimental and popped an end axle off each one of the trucks and boy did these flats run nice! Despite the way the weight is not distributed correctly between the truck mounting screw and the wheels.
Does anyone have a favorite set of aftermarket trucks they think would both look and ride decent under these?
Thanks for your time.
