The Prototype
American Steel Foundries (generally referred to as ASF) has been a major producer of freight car trucks for over a century. To this day, the ASF truck designs, specifically the 'Ride Control' family, are a common site under railcars all across North America. Generally speaking, many freight cars after the transition era use, or still use, this 70-Ton truck design with 33" wheels.

The Model
As with all BLMA Models products, this project started with blueprints, measurements, and a number of close-up photos. Designed to the highest standards possible, the N Scale models feature all of the detail of the prototype, and ride on machine-cut metal wheels with a prototypically thin appearance. These trucks are perfect for transition era freight cars!
