I see there are replacement trucks for the passenger cars, but I would like to add lights to un-lit caboose and would like to buy replacement trucks from a lighted caboose.

Are there any of these available for sale, or has anyone seen anything available somewhere else?  Would HO trucks fit On30 cars?

They'd be too small.

I realize you want to light your caboose, but you could consider adding phosphor bronze pickups to the factory trucks or pick up a pair of actual narrow gauge caboose trucks from San Juan Car Company.

I've used these on the Bachmann long caboose.

Just a suggestion.

Thanks for the information.  Those San Juan trucks don't have power pickups included, correct?  Can you point me to a resource showing how to make the bronze pickups?
