Drawings for 3' Narrow Gauge Bettendorf & Andrews trucks

Gentlemen, I am about to do a production run of 1/20th scale 24" and 26" wheelsets for Fn3 and I am looking for prototype drawings of 3' narrow gauge trucks, specifically, ones that used cast steel side frames.

Third option: Bring one home!

K4 Trailing Truck Drawing in SolidWorks

Re: HT-C Truck Drawings

Follow-up: I have now found EMD 8428730 Truck Frame and several bolster drawings for the HT-C truck. I still lack drawings for the G-G journal box or how to adapt the standard Hyatt box to use Timken roller bearings.

Gentlemen, I am going to be making some wheels for Fn3 (modeling 3' narrow gauge on Gauge 1 track), and I am looking for D&RGW or other prototype drawings for either 24" or 26" diameter wheels with smooth, not ribbed backs. Does anyone have a prototype drawing he could share with me? I will turn it ...
