While trying to look up photos of Differential Car Company trucks used under a C&O caboose, I came across this site, which had a page on the very similar "axleless" trucks used on industrial locomotives and cars from this firm.

The site is cool enough that I have to bring it to the attention of those here who are into such unique railways and their equipment.

The AIM guys are friends of mine. They are doing with mining and industrial railroading what I am doing with steel mill railroading.

AIM also has a coal mine exhibit at the Brownsville, PA showgrounds. Here is it in operation:

Glad you enjoyed that post!

Don't know if you're familiar with it (though I would almost guarantee the AIM people are), but there's an exhibition mine in Beckley, W.Va.--though it looks awfully tidy and clean for a coal mine!
