American Steel Foundries' new test train is a rolling laboratory designed to gather fundamental data on freight car action and the performance of different designs. Information gathered by the train is analyzed at ASF's research in Granite City, Ill. ASF has been concerned with problems of higher speeds and heavier tonnages and has developed static and dynamic testing programs for truck components. A product of this research is a new truck with performance capabilities beyond those of present standard 3-piece trucks.
