    Would any of you here be able to Identify this TYPE of TRUCK? One may have to click , drag and rotate the photo.

    I'm not sure, but it looks like a Bachmann or something. Those flanges could cut a Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. I have some old Bachmann full-dome cars in the scrapbox to check. I also have Rivarrossi heavyweights that are also potential matches. PM me to remind me and I'll check this weekend.

    This truck AFAIK was only used under the Roco modern crane. It was imported by AHM, Model Power, Con-Cor, E-R, and others.
    Spookshow's truck listing is amazing!!!

    Please do me and Richard Hendricksen's ghost a favor. They are Solid Bearings, not friction. That's an oxymoron.

    Friction bearings being an oxymoron, they were called journal bearings when they were de rigeur. The name comes from the fact that the oil was kept from dripping out by packing them with rags, or old newspapers.
