    In the U.S. they are termed "composite trucks"(IIRC) i.e. a timber frame with a steel facing. As early Pullman cars a fair number of Trans Atlantic features are likely to be present in these vehicles. FWIW the Friends of the Cumbres and Toltec are currently building new composite trucks for their 3' gauge Pullman style sleeper.
