New ‘Barber S-2 Roller Bearing 70 Ton’ Trucks from Kadee

In their latest newsletter, Kadee announced the arrival of a new 1:29 scale truck for large scale.

Kadee 973 1:29 scale Barber S-2 Roller Bearing 70 Ton Truck

The Barber® S-2 70-ton Roller Bearing truck is a logical development from the original friction bearing truck first introduced in the 1940 Ft.s. Our truck is based on a prototype built in 1967, however, the basic design was first introduced in the late 1950 Ft.s. The sturdiness of the Barber® S-2 truck is evidenced by the forty plus years it has rode the rails to date. A careful observer will spot these trucks in interchange use today. This truck can be used under almost any pre-1970 built 70-ton rolling stock.

Truck Features:

  • All Metal Non-Magnetic 2 Piece Self Equalizing Black Trucks
  • #960 33 in. Smooth Back All Metal Non-Magnetic Black Wheels with Free Rolling Insulated Axles
  • Clip on pads & brake rigging
  • Mounting Adapters for Bachmann, USA Trains, Aristo-Craft, Peco & LGB Included
  • Manufactured and assembled entirely in the U.S.A.

The ‘Barber S-2 Roller Bearing 70 Ton’ trucks are available under article number #973 for $ 49,99 (MSRP).
