Introduced in the late 1950’s - Used in interchange even today.The Barber S-2 70-ton Roller Bearing truck is a logical development from the original friction-bearing truck first introduced in the 1940s. Our truck is based on a prototype built in 1967, however, the basic design was first introduced in the late 1950s. 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.

Once Kadee trucks have been fitted to the car, always check the coupler height. Coupler height modification will probably be required due to non-standardized original equipment manufacturing in O-Scale. Always check coupler height and trip pin clearance using the #812 Kadee® Coupler Height Gauge for O-Scale, and check for the correct coupler height and trip pin clearance. If needed only use a Dry Graphite Lubricant such as our #231 “Greas-em” to lubricate the trucks couplers or moving parts.
Disclaimer: These instructions are guidelines for adapting Kadee® all metal 2-piece trucks to O-Scale rolling stock. Some additional modifications may be required and there is no express warranty that Kadee® trucks will work in all applications.
