Kato Blomberg Trucks, HO scale

Postby Southgate » Feb 23rd, '16, 06:55

I recently bought 5 pairs of these trucks from an eBay seller who apparently is not a rail modeler. So when they got here, I looked them over, played around with them with various motors and such. I even dissected one all the way down to see if I could find any other potential uses, which I did. These are good quality as found on Kato locomotives.

Having decided that 5 pairs isn't enough, I thought I'd go back for more. His original price was more than fair, WAY better than any other price I'd ever seen on eBay, but now I see he has dropped his price on sets of 10 pairs. Original price was $79.99 for 10 PAIR, now it's 49.99 plus fair shipping. He also sells in smaller quantities.

These are complete Kato Blomberg trucks, with the typical brass worm over idler driving 14 tooth axle gears. They do require that the original outer sideframes be used to help support the brass outer bearings, or as I plan to do, modify other plastic trucks (alco) to do so. they even have the u joints on the (2mm) input shaft.

I like to build and modify HO locomotives, and this deal can't be beat. I thought I'd pass it along. I am not associated with this seller in any way other than a very satisfied buyer.
