Thanks Rich:
Do you have any photos of these cars. Unfortunately I don't know how to
take the technical (Correct) side frame designation and convert it to the
terms I know like ASF Ride Control, Spring Plankless Etc.

The equipment diagram for these cars shows the truck side frames to be
a mix of ACF-21359-AE, and Symington-Gould TF5318, with Sym.-Gould
bolsters. Three cars had Chrysler high speed trucks (#53004, 53090,
53126). The
cars were built by Magor Car Corp. in Jan.-Feb. 1950. Ten cars were
equipped with DF loaders and renumbered 84975-84984.
