Dear Friends,

Does BM sell LS trucks?  I want to kitbash a few flat bed cars and cannot find any reference in the online catalog.

Thanks in advance!

Best Wishes,

You could use the Flat Car Kits, 2 sets in each.

Go to the Bachmann Gift Shop (link to the left), then under large scale you will see three different trucks.

Jack Yes they are,  Go to the left and click on the order parts box, Then click on the red Large scale box, and then you will see the three kinds of trucks.

I recommend Nathans approach,  Buy the Flat car kits, you get two complete cars and two sets of trucks with metal wheels.   

You can discard the flat car decks, and just use the underframes and truss rods, or underframe without trussrods,  or whatever you can think off.   Just be sure you get the latest issue to insure you get metal wheels.  The earlier flat car kits had plastic wheels!!

Dear Cas,

Just the ticket!  Thanks!

Dear Nathan,

Hadn't thought of that, probably the best idea!

Dear Bill,

How the heck are ya?  As Old Bill at Stone Harbor, NJ used to say, "I've got the fried potatoes in the skillet. Who's got the fish?"  Coffee's on!

Best Wishes,

Jack
