Monon left them on troop kitchen cars converted to storage mail cars after they were placed in MofW service.

Those still in passenger service after 1959 got ASF A3s.  I have one photo of a car after 1959 that had not yet been converted.

Quite a few railroads did keep Allied Full-Cushion Trucks running for a loooooong time in on-line service. The attached photo of a BAR caboose (in preservation at Tilton, New Hampshire. by the time I found it) shows this. I also saw C&O MW cars up with Allied trucks still in use up into the 1990s.
