Si, the stock Bachmann On30 "arch bar" trucks (under almost all their freight cars) in fact scale out to have a 3' wheelbase and look pretty much like the trucks under Silver City cars-in 1:35 scale. I ain't kidding!

Woodie,

The Hawthorne Village trucks scale out at 4'6" on the coaches I have.

It's exactly 1 1/8" between axle centers - my camera was angled. Whichwould be 3' in 1:35.
