I revised the subject. I am still looking for recommendations for HOn3 Trucks.

The only HOn3 trucks I have used are the Kadee #716's. They require assembly, and I highly recommend using their "Truck Assembly Fixture," if you don't already have it. They can be a bear to assemble without the fixture/jig. [:-banghead]

The trucks on this scratchbuilt HOn3 tool caboose are the Kadees.

Over the years I bought many different trucks. From that experience my preferences are

1. Kadee (see Mike C's post) - difficult to assemble, not highly detailed but great running quality

2. MDC - not highly prototypical for most freight cars, but great running quality. Currently discontinued

3. Grandt Line - best detail, good running

Thanks for the comments. I was looking at purchasing new ones as I have a wealth of CV trucks but they are no longer available.
