This is a Kadee 1563 HO Scale A.S.F.(R) Ride Control(R) 50-Ton Self-Centering HGC Trucks Code 88 (.088) 33 Ribbed-Back RP-25 Wheels 1 Pair. The A. S. F. A-3 Ride Control 50-ton freight truck was introduced in the 1940s and is one of the forerunners of modern freight trucks. Features embodied into this design include a longer spring travel, no spring planks and constant friction control using friction castings in the bolster to dampen excessive lateral roll of the car. These design features allowed for a higher train speed with less danger of derailment than previous designs. ASF sold over 140,000 sets by 1949. This truck is excellent for modeling the transition era up to 1994 when friction bearings were no longer allowed in interchange service. Self-centering action trucks self align themselves parallel with the car for easier placement on track. Mounts with a #2 or 2-56 screw. 2-piece fully equalized trucks. 1pair.
