Reply to "CSX 66' Greenbrier Gondola- Lionel- 2 Railed"

Lionel's solution is for 2-railers to purchase their 2-Rail conversion kit (~$20) for this new truck design, which includes 2-Rail double insulated replacement roller bearing style wheelsets (also with rotating bearing caps), a narrower replacement 2-Rail plastic truck bolster and a set of electrical pickup wipers (for those inclined to add any electronic gadgetry to their rolling stock).  However, the caveat with the larger modern cars is that Lionel currently only supplies a "one size fits all" for the wheel diameter and that is 33" wheelsets, which are not correct for this 100 Ton modern car so to be more accurate the 2-Rail modeler must come up with an alternate solution if they want 36" 100 Ton wheelsets on this car, i.e. replace the wheelsets with 36" NWSL spinner style wheelsets (~$21) as Mr. Dunn (original poster) has done or replace the entire truck with one that is already equipped with 36" wheels.
