Metal Fully Sprung Equalized Trucks

The Andrews truck is also a turn of the century design that was long lived. It represents one of the first steps in the development of the modern freight truck with its cast frame. The journal boxes are bolted to the main frame. This truck was used through the end of the 1950’s although by that time was only used in lighter applications such as refrigerator cars. Andrews trucks are probably still used where logging railroads remain in operation.
