The T94 had disc brakes. There were 5 cars so equipped

According to the information on the NWHS web site, two types of trucks were 
used, N&W types T-89 and T-94.  From the photos, they appear to be 
basically 41-N-11 trucks.  I personally do not know in more detail what 
differentiated a T-89 from a T-94, or what "41" classification specifically 
applied, but there are others who I'm confident can fill in the blanks.  
The one clue I see is that the equalizer beam on some of the trucks in the 
photos appears to be of the "flanged" type, while others are a plain rectangular 
cross section. 

If you're modeling, consider the distance from which the cars will be 
viewed.  If it's three feet or more, in HO the Walthers 41-N-11 933-1069 will do nicely, or the IHB "Super Free 
Rolling" four-wheel if  you can find some on eBay. (Do NOT use the 
Rapido 41-N-11; it has rotary snubbers.  The N&W used piston snubbers, 
and the difference CAN be seen from three feet.) 
Hope this helps, sorry I can't help on the T-89 vs T-94, but my knowledge 
just doesn't extend quite that far.
