Default G Scale/Finescale ARCH BAR TRUCKS Extinct??

It seems that you can no longer get Hartford's T-1 Archbar trucks, or Bachmann's Archbar trucks. Search online and all you find is HOn3 scale trucks. I'm a scratch builder and liked Hartford's metal Archbars. Does anyone know of another maker of similar archbar trucks for 1:20.3, G-Scale ?? Hope someone has the answer. I need to build more cars.
Thank you to anyone who has a good lead.

Jim,
I assume by "finescale" you mean F scale (1:20,) not G scale (1:who knows)?



Ozark lists their 1:20.3 archbars with 22, 24 or 26" wheels, model T-1-2x Regular price $61.95

I have a pair of frames (1 truck, no wheels) if you want them - I think they are Hartford.

Really? I found these by searching the Ozark website for "trucks".
https://ozarkminiatures.com/products/archbar-trucks-with-24-diameter-wheels-in-1-20-3-scale?_pos=27&_sid=326e11dea&_ss=r
Didn't see anything to stop me ordering them.


I recently purchased a caboose kit from that same website and it turned up promptly. What makes you think they don't carry the trucks?

Anyway, I've sent you a PM about my spares.

I just bought a set last fall. Took me about 6 weeks to get them. They have a lot of flash, but they are good trucks. They did not come with the fine scale wheels however. The wheels they came with looked like Bachmann wheels.

I just tried recently to order more T-1 trucks at OZARK. I think now they don't have T-1 trucks. Maybe they'll start up again?
I was wondering about the Hartford car kits. Would they stop supplying trucks for them too? I should contact OZARK directly and ask them what's the status for the T-1 trucks.....

I stand corrected !! ... I did what Pete did and just typed TRUCKS, and they appeared!!
SO THANK YOU TO ALL who responded.......Looks like OZARK does carry T-1 trucks.
Just how you ask gets the result!
Jim.
