The change from A.T.& S.F to A.T.S.F. took place in 1938
The change from A.T. S. F. to ATSF took place in 1944
Just because the lettering changed does not mean they swapped to shorter boards. I have seen photos of ATSF on long boards.
Trucks: "Bettendorf" type cast steel

I would like to determine when the Santa Fe changed from the long
lettering boards with A.T.& S.F. To the shorter boards without the
periods.

Also would like a recommendation for the best trucks for the SK-Q
and SK-S series.

Thankd in davance:
