The idea is you choose your own wheelsets.
The 70t Barber S-2-C with solid bearing wheelsets were the mainstay of most 70t cars throughout the fifties to the eighties and beyond. This was a truck that the cost conscience railroad would buy but still afford the trucking capabilities and qualities of a common Barber S-2-C design. The Gulf, Mobile & Ohio, DT&I and ICG used this truck.
