I have a boxcar that needs a wheel truck replaced. I ordered a replacement truck which has arrived and, although it appears identical to the original, the threaded attachment point seems to be in the middle of the truck vs. the end of the truck opposite the coupler. (see photo) The new truck is the 6-14078, whereas the trucks on the double door boxcar have attachment on the rear stalk.
Does anyone know what the part number is for the truck with the threading at the end of the truck? I could not find it on Lionel's site. ...or is there a way to thread this one and make it work?
(The boxcar is 6-27223)
