Brian, here's an old note of mine:

Railway Age 1/1947 V.122 #1 p.111 American Steel Foundries ad with photo of
ASF A-3; claims that 26,000 pairs were ordered in 1946

Yesterday I looked through one of Morning Sun's color guides and found two GM&O cars with 50-ton A-3 trucks:

40' box car series 21000-21999, built by AC&F June 1947. 10'-6" interior height.
40' auto (double door) car series 35300-35379, built between Dec. 1947 to Jan. '48.
