....I received this for Christmas and am looking to install it.  However, it appears the truck needs to be attached via the topside screw, meaning it requires a certain freight car that would allow this to work? Am I missing something or making this more complicated than it really is?  Any suggestions as to certain cars that would work well with this?  Thanks....

It fits on any MTH freight cars I have seen, but you have unscrew several screws on the bottom of the car to remove the car body from the base.  Then you can get to the top screw.  For example, the photo below is of the bottom of a coalporter.  This shows one of  the four screws that holds the car body to the base.  There are two that flank each truck.
