The A. S. F. A-3 Ride ControlÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃî 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. ASFÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃî 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.
