Chrysler FR-5 Express Car Trucks
Author: tramfan

Is there a manufacturer that produces HO Scale models of the Chrysler FR-5 truck? These were often used on express cars, and some railroads used them to replace the Allied Full Cushion trucks after they were outlawed in 1955.

I'm unaware of any HO scale Chysler trucks being produced aside from those that accompanied some brass PFE reefers. Twin Star Models once offered resin castings that replaced the springs on conventional AAR trucks, but they are no longer in business.

They are still in business but lost their domain name so no longer have a web site. Contact is "twinstarcars - at- yahoo - dot- com".

This from another list, I have no connection etc. etc.

Seconded.  If you look for Ross Dando (Twin Star Models) on Facebook and send him a message, he should be able to hook you up.  I got a few sets of these from him and they're great.
