On the Rivarossi Berkshire tender, buckeye trucks would be correct for 
the tenders used on the K1's. Buckeyes are also correct  for the 18k WB  
tenders that the others pulled after WWII. I would just buy the Spectrum 
auxiliary. While it is worth it for just the trucks, the body is an 
excellent start on the 16k tenders the K's pulled before 1946, and the 
trucks are correct.   Jim Nichols
