AAR Roller BEaring Trucks
Build it yourself in a weekend, the kit comes complete with everything: wheels and axles machined and absolutely every item you need to assemble your trucks. There’s little finishing work to be done, just a little filing. All holes have been drilled, tapped and counter-sunk. Everything lines up. Everything is square. It’s a snap to assemble. But take your time, it’s the perfect opportunity to marvel at how well constructed your new trucks are, and dream ahead to the many years of faithful service they will provide.
Now you can purchase Plum Cove Studio's unpowered freight car axles and even our powerful Generic Electric axles a la carte!
Also, want to power existing trucks, or trucks from another manufacturer?
We can help!
Features cast iron or ductile iron wheels machined to IBLS standards (approx. 4.125" on the tread).
Also, Plum Cove Studios products normally have the 5/8ID
bearings pressed onto the axle ends.
(Please advise us if you don't want your bearings pressed on!)
Power to spare!!! Available in 7.25 or 7.50 gauge, these are the same power axles found in the Generic Electric. Features easy to maintain "open" design and a motor that can run on 12 volts or 24 volts, your choice (we use 24 volts on the Generic Electric).
Unless you specify otherwise, we'll press our normal bearings on the axles. Motor mounts feature trouble-free Oilite bushings.
