The PRR also applied Crown trucks to Class H34d. AKA PS2 covered hoppers built in the PRR shops from kits supplied by Pullman Standard.

PRR also applied Crown trucks to X53 insulated box cars! There's
a photo of PRR 21048 on riding on Crown trucks
in 1974.

Any photo of a PRR H39a will show Crown trucks in use on cars built post 1957. The
H39 class cars were built by outside vendors (Bethlehem, Greenville, etc.) with
ASF Type A-3 trucks while the H39a were built in the PRR Sam Rea shops circa 1959-60
and rode on recycled crown trucks salvaged from scraped H21a family of cars.
