What do these trucks look like?

Good evening--Back on Dec 11, in a stream on the weights of different trucks, Mike Schleigh used these trucks as examples:

Railway Truck Corp. Snub-Up----7240 pounds
    Dual Control----7160 pounds
    ASF A-3----7140 pounds
    Barber S-2 Stabilized----7380

I can easily identify HO models for the last two using Richard Hendrickson's HO SCALE FREIGHT TRUCKS and Tahoe Model Works' listing. However, the first two are unknowns. Can anyone point to models of the Snub-Up and Dual Control?

"Dual Control" was a term used by the National Malleable and Steel Castings Co. for describing some features of their B-1 trucks.  Athearn and Kadee offer these National B-1 trucks in HO.

Railway Truck Corp. offered a variety of snubbing designs that worked with standard AAR truck side frames, so there is no one unique look.  Their Snub-Up Truck Unit used a special truck bolster, as shown in the 1949-1951 CBC, but spotting features are minor.
