Re: Should be running boards and roofs

The three basic types are the Apex (fabricated rectangular grid), Morton
(punched round holes), and Gypsum (punched and stretched into diamond
holes). Other companies have made running boards (Blaw-Knox for instance),
but I don't recall what they look like. Didn't the Blaw-Knox look like an
Apex?
Yes, Blaw-Knox and Apex are both interlocking rectangular grids.

Another rare type is the "Alan Wood" solid running board with diamond
tread -- not unlike diesel walkways. These were used on PRR X37's and
I think may have been used on some eastern cabooses.
