Some of the cars lasted to 1960. My question is whether the original
trucks would still have been legal by that date. The referenced photo
below shows one of these cars with a more modern ARA/AAR design truck,
but I'd like to know if the original trucks had to be replaced by
a mandate before 1960.
 
All "T" "L" and "I" section truck side frames were prohibited in interchange on, and after, January 1, 1957.
