Where could I purchase a trailing truck for a Steam Engine.  I'd like to make an Aristo Pacific into a 4-6-4.

This is a question that probably should be ask on the Aristo-Craft site.
To the best of my knowledge Bachmann has no two axle trailing trucks available in large scale.

Yup the AristoCraft forum - kit-bashing - is the place to ask.  Rex Ammerman over there has made a bunch of beautiful 4-8-4's for his pals - ask him nicely and he might just tell you how he made the trailing truck.

Good luck!

I left a message for Rex, but he didn't reply.  I was just using the Aristo Pacific as an example. I would try using it on more than one of their engines.
Since I started this post, I've received a 2-10-2, 4-8-4 and a 4-6-4.

It will take more than the trailing truck--to look right you will neeed to lengthen the firebox.  A good rule of thumnb is that the rear trailer truck axle should be approximately under the front of the cab.  gj
