BETTENDORF TRUCK ORDERS

Post by Trainman4602 » Thu Jun 13, 2019 5:24 pm

Hi All
I finally cought a decent day to travel to the foundry and avoid the rain. Cast iron rust when it gets wet.
What loads of iron. This is what 50 pair of trucks and wheels looks like.

Now on to boxing and shipping them out.

Dave can you post here when the truck orders have all been shipped? That way we'll know if ours should have arrived without having to keep asking. We're just anxious because we have projects to put them under. Thank you too for understanding.

Glad to hear that others are getting their trucks. I would also like to hear when mine will be shipped. It would be helpful to know when I should expect my order. As it looks now, I will need to source other trucks for projects nearing completion because I don't have room to keep completed cars without trucks.
