Now for the unanswerd questions:
3)What kind of handbrake?
4)My roster indicates these cars had "AAR" trucks. Is this the
"Bettendorf" truck that we all love?
I would like to start a modeling project, so I need this info.
If anyone can give some insight into this please let me know.

Note that Pullman-Standard referred to the roofs as "Turtle-back" rather than
the more familiar term "Round Roof." Dates are take from either builder's
photos or in-service photos, several of which are available from Bob's Photo.
Hope this provides the information you are looking for. A builder's photo
#11353 is shown on page 29 of RP CYC #4.
