Herb,
Thanks for confirming my suspicions. For modeling purposes, the depth of the frame side sills, possibly along with the type of truck used, seems to be all that needs to vary. Even though it was constructed in 1938, the 35 ton loco I'm modeling actually used arch bar trucks (no, it was not used in interchange service). An almost identical loco of much lighter weight shows much thinner side sills.

Cheers,

Scott Maze
