According to the RPI group the shrink table of the A-50-6 from 1949 - 1956

1949     84 cars left
1953     12
1956       2
1961       0

K brakes were outlawed in the 1954 for interchange service. I am sure with the UP, these cars all had AB brakes in 1949.

Hello Group:
I purchased a Westerfield 5851 A-50-6 boxcar kit and was wondering where I could find information if they were ever converted to AB brakes and would have been in revenue service around 1955. Any information to point me in the right direction would be appreciated.
