Beware of Counterfeits

We know of other suppliers who have copied
Tom's patterns and are selling trucks, couplers,
and/or castings imported from other countries.

These products will not be warranted or
in any way supported by Tom Bee.

Why buy these when you can buy the best?

This test shows the flexibility of Tom Bee Trucks.

The brass fixture is .275 inches above the top of the rail. It is the only fixture in the test. Notice how easily the wheels climb over it. Watch closely how the bolsters bounce during the test. This shows correct spring tension for each car. Springs that are too strong won't allow enough flexibility, creating a potential for derailment. Not enough tension and they tend to bottom out. Notice also how well these trucks work given the wide variety of car types.
