The A. S. F. A-3 Ride ControlÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â® 50-ton freight truck was introduced in the 1940's
and is one of the forerunners of modern freight trucks. Features embodied into
this design include a longer spring travel, no spring planks and constant
friction control using friction castings in the bolster to dampen excessive
lateral roll of the car. These design features allowed for a higher train speed
with less danger of derailment than previous designs. ASFÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’ÃƒÆ’Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â® sold over 140,000
sets by 1949. This truck is excellent for modeling the transition era up to 1994
when friction bearings were no longer allowed in interchange service.
