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
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.
