Can anyone tell me when US freight trains first started to use three-axle trucks on rolling stock, especially flat cars and pulpwood cars?

I have a flat car that has a build date of 1935, but the trucks look more contemporary than of that era.

FYI, late 1950s is my general cutoff point. I have a few cars with 1960s build dates, but the logos, paint schemes and paint designs are stylistically consistent with earlier years.

Thanks in advance.
