Jeff,

The Stoddard Lumber Company trucks that the 04951 were on at the Sumpter Valley Railroad were originally used under a gondola on the Colorado & Northwestern. When the car came to Oregon it was converted to a flatcar. The trucks that went to Kansas are almost identical to the ones at the Sumpter Valley, but I don't know what they rode under in service. I do know they had Barney & Smith wheels in them. They were acquired from a private collection for the trade.

Thanks, Taylor
