BLW DIESEL TRUCK DATA


Truck centers are the dimension from center to center of truck bolster, not the jacking pads.
This data is for units as delivered from the manufacturers.
Always refer to pictures of the unit to be modeled as many trucks are interchangeable.
The trucks were sometimes swapped by the Railroads or rebuilders.
