Re: NKP/WLE 78000 series 70 ton hopper

Richard, I guess I was confused, but the confusion occurred after reading
your article in RPC 4. <grin>. In the ASF A-3 Ride-Control section and photo
captions sometimes you wrote "ASF A-3 Ride Control" and in others only "A-3"
so I was thinking there was an non-ride control variant. Thanks for clearing
that up.

My original questions still stands, would the notation "ASF basic cast steel
trucks with integral journal boxes" mean the cars were equipped with A-3
trucks. The WLE 78000 series hoppers were built in 1947-1948.
