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
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.
