which allowed use of Kadee 36" HO wheelsetsBelow are some dimensions for rolling stock trucks that I have been able to compile.   These may be of some help when deciding which trucks to use with your kit.   I have also been able to use the Tichy nylon bearings in the San Juan and MacLeod trucks (19") resulting in lower height.
This list is by no means complete and I am always open to additional dimensions which I will add.
