Allied Full Cushion Trucks
Allied full cushion trucks were designed to roll high-speed freight cars with passenger car smoothness. The unique combination of soft-acting coil springs and swing hangers enabled them to effectively dissipate shock, producing greatly improved performance at all speeds. Introduced in the early 1940s, they were ultimately used by sixteen different railroads to reduce the cost of freight damage. After WWII, they were gradually removed from service because of their tendency to derail. In 1955, they were banned from interchange service by the ICC.

Andrews Trucks
A contemporary of both the Archbar and the Bettendorf (A.A.R. Standard) trucks. It’s cast frame design was less prone to failure and allowed the use of expensive, serviceable journal boxes left-over from retired Archbar Trucks. The two main spotting features are the bolts that attach to the journal boxes and the tie-bars from the bottom of each journal box to the diagonal of the casting.
