Transman,

All-metal truck introduced by Lionel to replace the staple-end truck. When viewed from the side, there is a short metal bar protruding from the truck side. The bar-end truck was available with magnetic or tab couplers and used routinely from 1952 through 1957 and sporadically through 1969.

Here is a linkfrom where I found it: http://www.postwarlionel.com/terms/truck8a.jpg
