The truck in the photo has traction motors powering the axles, and it also has outboard mounted disc brakes. The Amfleet I trucks do not have traction motors powering the axles, and have inboard mounted disc brakes where the two rotors are located between the two wheels. So, the trucks designs are similar, yet significantly different.
I can't tell what components, if any, are forgings on the Amfleet I trucks. I've never seen an Amfleet truck completely torn down for inspection and rebuild.
On most streamliner era passenger cars trucks, such as an Amtrak Heritage fleet car, the equalizers are large forgings (either slab design or Canton "I" beam design) and the swing hangers & swing hanger crossbars are smaller forgings. I suspect the various pins are also forgings, but I could be wrong.
